ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Orange County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday said its deputies and hostage negotiators spent that morning coming to a peaceful resolution of a domestic disturbance in a resort not far from Lake Buena Vista.
Deputies responded at 5:08 a.m. to Grand Beach by Diamond Resorts in the 8300 block of Lake Bryan Beach Blvd., where they learned a man was in a room with a small child and refused to come out, according to a news release.
Hostage negotiators worked for more than eight hours speaking with the man, what led him to eventually surrender peacefully, the release stated.
The man — who deputies said was unarmed — was taken into custody and the child was said to be safe and unharmed.
No further information would be provided Sunday, the sheriff’s office said.
