Just after 4 a.m. on Monday, officers with the Edmond Police Department received a call about an assault near 15th St. and Santa Fe.

Investigators say a woman went to a neighbor’s home to say that her ex-boyfriend broke into her house and pistol whipped her.

When officers arrived at the scene, they believed that the alleged suspect had barricaded himself inside the woman’s home.
