Police tried unsuccessfully to contact the home's occupants by knocking on the door as using a public-address system to get them to come of the home. Officers then requested assistance from the Noble County Special Operations Group. A crisis negotiator talked to Strammer by phone. After several minutes on the telephone, the victim was allowed to leave and Strammer soon came outside and was taken into custody without incident at 9:38 p.m.
There were no reported injuries and the investigation is ongoing, according to the release.
Strammer was jailed on a preliminary charge of domestic battery and resisting law enforcement.
The Ligonier Fire Department, Noble County EMS, Noble County Special Operations Group, and Indiana State Police assisted.
