A Spencer man is facing several charges after a domestic disturbance call turned into a standoff at a home Sunday.
Upon arrival, officers determined the suspect 21-year-old Dawson Walker had threatened the occupants of the home with a gun and was keeping them locked inside. Officers made entry into the house and evacuated the occupants safely, along with removing the firearm.
Police say Walker armed himself with a butcher knife, and a standoff ensued. Walker eventually gave up and exited the home, where police took him into custody without further incident. Walker was charged with felon in possession of a firearm, domestic abuse assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, operation without owner’s consent, false imprisonment and interference with official acts.
