Kenosha County Sheriff's Department

After an injured woman told deputies she was battered inside a Trevor home, the suspect barricaded himself inside his house for five hours before giving himself up to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department early this morning.

According to the sheriff’s department, at 12:15 a.m. deputies were called to a home in the 12200 block of 280th Avenue for a battery complaint.

They found a partially clothed woman who said she had been assaulted by a man in a nearby house, the woman saying the man had a weapon. The man was inside the home, refusing to respond to deputies.

The sheriff’s tactical response team, negotiations team and mobile command unit were called in.

Negotiators tried to reach the man by telephone and through a “public address system” for hours without success, the sheriff’s department said.

At 4 a.m., the man began speaking to them, talking to negotiators for about an hour until “a peaceful surrender was negotiated.”

The 33-year-old man was taken into custody at 5:10 a.m., according to Sgt. Tony Gonzalez.

The woman was treated at a local hospital and then released.

The sheriff’s department is not releasing the man’s identity and said the incident remains under investigation.

“This was an isolated incident, and there is no danger to the public,” according to a statement from the sheriff’s department.
