Trotwood police Chief Erik Wilson said officers were called Monday afternoon to a house in the 100 block of North Northampton Avenue for a domestic violence report.

“A victim was described as being assaulted by her live-in boyfriend and assaulted for several hours,” Wilson said during a Monday evening media briefing. “We have been here before on similar incidents. That’s why it was imperative that we call out the SWAT team and get him out.”

Shively’s live-in girlfriend had visible injuries to her face, ears and arms and was taken to a local hospital, according to an statement of facts filed in court by Trotwood police detective Jeremy Kinder.

“Shively punched and kicked the victim, held a knife to her throat. Shively dragged the victim into a camper on the property and locked her inside using a padlock. She was held against her will inside the camper for at least six hours,” the document stated.

Bond was set at $25,000 for Shively during his arraignment on Wednesday. He remains in the Montgomery County Jail., where he has been held since his Monday evening arrest.
