(8-24-22) On 8/23/2022, at about 4:15 a.m., the Lima Police Department received a call about a disturbance, at 1610 S. Union Street. When they arrived, patrol officers spoke to Lane Riley (40), from Van Wert. She reported that she had been assaulted in 1610 S. Union by the resident, Jacquavious Cartwright (34). Lane reported a handgun was used by Cartwright during the assault, and that he was still armed and inside the residence at the time of their arrival.

As a result, patrol officers secured the area and L.P.D. Detectives, L.P.D. HNT (Hostage Negotiation Team) and Allen County S.W.A.T. were called to respond. No direct contact was able to be made to Cartwright, inside the house, but messages from the HNT team were relayed to Cartwright advising that S.W.A.T. was being deployed to his residence, in an attempt to encourage him to come out of the house willingly and without further incident. As the S.W.A.T. team set up outside of the residence, Jacquavious Cartwright exited and willingly was taken into custody.

Jacquavious Cartwright was held on suspicion of Felonious Assault and transported and held at the Allen County Jail.
