On Thursday December 2, 2021 at approximately 10:04 AM, officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a residence located in the 600 block of High Street in reference to a domestic investigation. As officers arrived on the scene, they spoke with an adult female who advised that she had been physically assaulted and was not permitted to leave the residence for several days by an adult male at the residence. This morning, the female along with her two children managed to leave the residence and contact police.

The male was believed to be inside the residence and possibly armed with a firearm. Officers attempted to make contact with the male for several minutes at which all attempts were unsuccessful. At this time, officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department’s Emergency Team, Crisis Response Team, and Air Support Unit were dispatched to the scene.

Officers continued for several hours to attempt to make contact with the male believed to still be inside the residence which were unsuccessful. Officers with the Emergency Services Team eventually entered the residence and determined that the male subject was not inside the residence. This continues to be an ongoing investigation and additional details will be relayed at a later time.
