Dayton standoff ends 12 hours after break-in reported

A standoff in Dayton lasted nearly 12 hours after a woman reported her estranged husband had broken into her home Sunday.

Around 11:57 a.m. Sunday, a 911 caller reported her husband had broken into her home and she had him on security camera inside, according to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch records.

The woman said she has a TPO, or temporary protection order, against him.

A SWAT unit responded to the 200 block of Alaska Street. Shortly after 3 p.m., Dayton police posted on social media asking people to avoid the area.

The woman was not home at the time of the break-in. She told dispatch she didn’t know how he could have a key to the house.

“He came in through the front door and I got him on camera and he put my camera down into the couch so I couldn’t see what he’s doing,” she said.

Dayton police shared an update at 11:47 p.m. Sunday that said police activity had ended and people could return to the area.

Dispatch records indicated the scene was cleared at 12:07 a.m. on Memorial Day.

It’s not clear if anyone was arrested. No injuries were reported, according to dispatch.
