INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police and SWAT responded to a hostage situation Sunday on the east side of Indianapolis.
Police say around 10 a.m. they responded to North Gray Street to calls of domestic violence.
When they arrived they found a man had barricaded himself inside the home. The man, identified as 35-year-old Ricky Rybolt, was believed to have guns inside.
Rybolt came out of the home after a short time with his hands up and surrendered. His brother was outside waiting.
“Good dude. I mean, he’s good with his kids. He isn’t a bad person. He isn’t violent or nothing. He’s a real good dude,” John Rybolt said.
Officers say a female victim had minor injuries.
Police say Rybolt, who was on probation for domestic violence out of Hendricks County, was arrested on battery and domestic battery charges.
