CAMDEN, Del. - It's been almost a week since a Camden man is accused of barricading himself inside a home, holding Police at Bay for over eight hours. Now Delaware State Police are finally releasing the identity of the suspect. They say it was 49-year-old John Deane that physically assaulted and threatened his 28-year-old girlfriend before barricading himself in the Wild Quail home on October 3. The alleged victim managed to escape before the standoff.

Troopers say they first responded to a call for a reported domestic assault. They believe at one point, Deane held a rifle to the woman's head and a knife to her throat while threatening to kill her. After she fled, Troopers arrive and say Deane shot a pellet gun through the second floor windows in the direction of the Troopers. It was just after 10PM when the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team made entry into the home and took the suspect into custody. They say he suffered undisclosed self-inflicted injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Deane has since been released from the hospital and is being held on $18,000 cash bail. He is charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, two counts of reckless endangerment, aggravated menacing, third degree assault, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest.
