Concerns about a reported domestic violence incident early May 4 led Brighton Police to surround an apartment complex in the southwestern part of the city.
The Brighton Police Department were called to the scene at the Riverwalk Apartments in the 700 block of Mockingbird St. early in the morning on Tuesday, May 4 in regards to a possible suspect at large regarding a domestic violence incident. The Police and Swat teams surrounded the apartment complex with guns drawn.
“Based on the circumstances and the information, we were able to garner, we initially, called out our SWAT team to assist our patrol division in securing the scene and preventing any additional danger to the residents,” said Commander Matthew Domenico Brighton Police Department of the Patrol Division.
Domenico said they received tips from dispatch from different mobile phones that it was a hostage situation but detectives later determined that was inaccurate.
“No one was inside the home and we made contact with the resident and they are aware of what's going on,” said Domenico. "I don't believe the resident was a friend or the suspect lived at the address. I can't say anything additional about the reason. We've got some investigative work to figure out all the circumstances behind it.”
No arrest was made and the investigation is ongoing and there was no active threat to the community, Domenico said. The area has been cleared and residents are safe to return home.
“There is still a suspect at large that we're looking for. We're not prepared to release any names or any information at this point. But we do not believe those represent threats to the communities,” said Domenico.
