“Crisis on Livingston Street”

Orlando Police Department

On November 25th, 2009, the day before Thanksgiving, the Orlando Police Department Communication Center received a 911 call from a frantic female who reported she escaped from being held captive by her estranged husband. Her four children, ages ranging from 2-9 years of age, were still at the residence along with the suspect’s blind brother. The suspect was armed with two guns and had a military-style bullet proof vest. The Orlando Police Department’s Patrol Units responded. The OPD SWAT Team and Crisis Negotiations Team were immediately activated.
