LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A 37-year-old Louisville man is in custody after barricading himself inside a home in Old Louisville for several hours early June 21.

After trying to persuade Tyrone Doyle to come out peacefully for 7 1/2 hours, officers fired a round of pepper spray into the residence around 11:30 a.m. Doyle emerged from a window a short time afterwards.

Officer Carey Klain, a LMPD spokesperson, said the incident began around 3:30 a.m. when a woman told police her boyfriend assaulted her. 

"At 3:30 this morning, a female victim showed up at LMPD second division advising that she had been assaulted," Klain said. "She was also injured."

When police arrived at the residence in the 700 block of Zane Street around 4 a.m., the suspect refused to leave.

"When police arrived, they knocked on the door, and the subject said he's not coming out and he is armed," Klain said.

James Luney, who lives nearby, was surprised by an early morning wakeup call from police.

"They came and woke me up and told me I had to get out," Luney said.

Luney says he hasn't known Doyle to cause trouble in the past.

"Usually, he is calm," Luney said. "And like everybody else, he likes to have fun."

Luney described Doyle's alleged victim as good-natured.

"She's the sweetest thing you'd ever want to see," Luney said. "She doesn't mess with nobody. She'd stop and laugh and joke with you and that's about it."

Doyle is charged with assaulting his girlfriend, and several more charges are pending.

One member of the LMPD SWAT team was injured when he was struck in the face by flying glass. He was taken to the hospital, but there's no word yet on his condition.
