Barricaded Subject

January 2, 2014


Date:                           Thursday, January 2, 2014


Time:                           9:47 p.m.


Location:                     3227 Rodgers Avenue


Suspect:                       Gregory D. Brownlow M/51

                                    Fort Wayne


Victim:                         Female Adult


Details:                        Fort Wayne Police responded to the intersection of New Haven Avenue and Coliseum Boulevard at approximately 9:47 p.m. on the report of a possible kidnap attempt. 911 Communications Center was alerted by a passing motorist who witnessed an adult female escape a motor vehicle by climbing out of a window of a dark in color Cadillac.


                                    The female victim had been battered and held against her will at the suspect’s residence before being driven from that location. Investigators learned that the two had recently met and knew one another for approximately two days prior to this incident. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries she sustained during her ordeal.


                                    Officers were able to determine where Brownlow resided but were unsuccessful in their attempts to make contact with him. A decision was made to secure the immediate area and at 10:50 p.m. our E.S.T. and C.R.T. teams were deployed in an attempt to get Brownlow to surrender to officers peacefully. At 2:05 a.m. Brownlow left his residence and was taken into custody without incident. He was transported to Police Headquarters where he was interviewed and later charged with Criminal Confinement and Battery.


                                    This incident was investigated by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutors office.
