Early Saturday morning the Starke County Police Department were notified that an unknown woman had been battered at 8940 E. Long Lane Drive in Knox. Andrew Glover of the same address was identified as the perpetrator.
Starke County Sheriff’s Deputies and Knox City Police Officers responded to the residence and attempted to investigate the complaint with what is referred to as a “Knock and Talk” with residents at the Long Lane location and received no response from within the residence.
Police had at this time developed information that there were possibly three children in the home and that the suspect, Andrew Glover possibly had weapons. Officers requested further assistance and after attempted negotiations failed, the Indiana State Police Negotiation Swat Team was called in for assistance with the situation.
The Swat Team arrived and negotiations continued until Andrew Glover was persuaded to exit the residence and was apprehended by the Indiana State Police Swat Team. The incident is still under investigation by the Starke County Police Department who were assisted by the Indiana State Police, Knox Police Department, Pulaski County Police Department and the Washington Township Fire Department.
Mr. Glover has had previous arrests for Domestic Battery in the presence of a child, intimidation and trespass.
