Police respond to domestic incident at South Topeka motel

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – An apparent domestic disturbance led police to a south side motel Monday morning.

A number of law enforcement were called to an incident shortly after 8:00 a.m. at the Traveler’s Inn Motel on South Topeka Boulevard. The call originally came in from dispatchers as a hostage situation. Police say no arrests were made and that those involved were taken in for questioning.

A worker at a convenience store just to the south of the motel said the pair who appeared to have been involved had an argument in front of their store earlier in the morning.

“In front of the store, out of nowhere, we kind of heard this clink, said Larry’s Short Stop employee Jaclyn Hamby. We’re like ‘what the heck was that,’ so we went to investigate and we found out that he had chucked a phone at the girl and it hit our glass windows in front of the store. Before we had a chance to say anything, he had already taken off.”

Police say the investigation into the case is ongoing.
