LORAIN — A two-hour standoff stemming from a domestic violence call ended without incident early Monday.

Lorain police responded to a domestic violence complaint at about 8:15 p.m. Sunday in the 1300 block of Redbud Place, according to Capt. Roger Watkins.

Upon arrival, Amanda Kackert, 29, told officers her live-in boyfriend, Daniel Keith Duncan, had picked her up and slammed her to the ground before fleeing.

Kackert’s toddler-aged son was also in the residence during the alleged incident.

Officers searched the area, but Duncan was not located. Officers signed an affidavit charging Duncan with domestic violence.

At 11:46 p.m., dispatchers received a call from the same residence in which a female, later identified as Kackert, can be heard over the open line telling someone to get out of her residence. Kackert did not respond to the dispatcher and the line went dead, Watkins said.

When officers responded to the house, Kackert answered the door. Officers saw Duncan inside the residence before Kackert slammed the door closed, Watkins said.

Officers’ repeated attempts to get Duncan to surrender himself were unsuccessful. The Lorain Police SWAT and Hostage Negotiator units responded amid concerns that Duncan was holding Kackert and her son against their will, Watkins said.

After an extended period of attempting to get Duncan out of the house without response, he eventually spoke with hostage negotiators via phone.

He surrendered without incident at 2 a.m. Monday, Watkins said. Kackert and the child were unharmed.

Kackert did not cooperate with police after the matter was resolved, Watkins said.

Duncan was taken to the Lorain City Jail on the initial charge of domestic violence, as well as obstructing official business charge related to the standoff.

    Daniel Duncan should audition for a V-8 Vegetable Cocktail commercial. His photo looks like he just said, “I could have had a V-8!”

  • Bill Love

    She should be charged top

      I agree. Her slamming the door on officers to prevent them from arresting her scumbag boyfriend led to police needing to bring an a SWAT team. She should be charged with obstruction as well.

      I’ve seen women around the county with neck tattoos and on the web for being arrested, they look like freaks!

    Is that Gollum from Lord of the Rings????

      OMG yes. I have been sitting here all day trying to figure out who that POS reminded me of.

        Probably crawls around on all fours and calls his girlfriend “my precious.”

          well there you go…..if he had been in possession of the ring he would have gotten away….that’s what happens when you misplace your stuff

  • Chan

    If she doesn’t wish to cooperate I think her child should be removed from her custody for child endangerment and the police should never respond to another 911 call from her residence. …I’m sick of women protecting abusers.

    im telling you, save tax payer money, light the house on fire, I bet they will come out eventually, and you won’t even have to put our law enforcement officers in danger.

    Amanda Kackert…..Thanks for wasting the police officers time and taxpayer money. You should be charged with obstruction and child endangering!
