A man has been taken into custody after a standoff with officers from multiple Madison County law enforcement agencies.
Saturday morning just after 9:30, officers with the Madison Police Department responded to a home in the Cypress Lake subdivision to a call concerning a male subject assaulting a female and possibly kicking her on the ground.
Upon arrival, the female victim was discovered on the sidewalk suffering from multiple injuries. Medical attention was provided for the victim while officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, 26-year-old Brandon Stephen Bly.
Attempts to make contact with Bly were unsuccessful and it was determined that a four-year-old child was also inside the residence.
Special Response Teams the from Madison Police Department, the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, and the Ridgeland Police Department were activated and responded to the scene. Officers continued seeking negotiations with Bly but remained unable to work with the suspect.
Just before 12:30 p.m., contact was made with Bly and he was taken into custody without incident. Special Response Teams entered the residence and discovered that the child was unharmed.
The four-year-old was attended to by medical personnel and later returned to the child’s grandfather. The unidentified female victim was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries.
Bly was transported to the Madison County Detention Center where he awaits his initial appearance on the charges of Aggravated Domestic Violence and Kidnapping.
