DALLAS – Police surrounded an Oak Cliff housing complex after a woman reported that she had been sexually assaulted in an apartment.

“She was severely beaten up,” a witness said “Her eye was black and her nose was broke. I was trying to do the nice thing and let her know there’s a hospital over here, but she was too terrified and scared.”

The woman’s report lead police to believe that there were multiple armed men and a hostage in the apartment. SWAT officers arrived at the building and set up a perimeter, calling out to the suspects over a loudspeaker.  “Do what’s right. We are not going away!,” an officer shouted.

Police continued to hold their ground for six hours as they attempted to negotiate with the suspects. During the standoff, a police spokesman said the officers were working “toward a peaceful resolution.”

Officers eventually entered the apartment to find that there was no one inside.

    This is actually pretty refreshing. Normally we’d get stories about them barging in guns ablaze before even confirming the target.

    The patience to wait it out for six hours? I’m amazed.

    Looks like they got what they wanted…a peaceful resolution. LOL. Did they check to see if they were getting a response from their “negotiations”? Not. That might have been a clue as to how many were inside.

    That’s because they were afraid, they believed that there were multiple ARMED men in the apartment.
