A Beatrice man was arrested for assault after a two-hour standoff where he refused to exit a residence.

At around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Gage County deputies responded to S. 51st Road in southern Gage County to a report of domestic assault.

The victim told deputies she was assaulted by Sidney R. Williams, 57.

Williams had allegedly been drinking when he grabbed the victim and threw her to the ground. He then allegedly kicked her in the ribs and stomach before she was able to get out of the house, according to court records.

The victim was transported to a Marysville, Kan., hospital. Before being transported the victim said Williams was still in the residence and mentioned he may be getting a firearm.

Deputies attempted to contact Williams over the PA system in a patrol vehicle for around two hours. He was eventually convinced to come outside and ad was arrested without incident.

Williams denied assaulting the victim, but said they had been arguing verbally for the past two days.

He was placed under arrest for third-degree domestic assault. His bond was set at $5,000 with a 10 percent deposit and a hearing is scheduled for April 10 in the case.
