Chief: Charges expected against hostage suspect following hospital release

GLENMOOR — The Annesley Road man accused of holding his brother hostage over the weekend was expected to be released Monday from the hospital where he was taken for evaluation following the incident.

St. Clair Township police Chief Brian McKenzie said Monday afternoon that he expected charges to be filed against Dayne Ours, 43, 15260 Annesley Road, following his release from the hospital.

“He’s still there being treated,” McKenzie said Monday of Ours.

Charges of domestic violence, aggravated menacing and unlawful restraint were to be filed, McKenzie had reported Saturday following the incident, which began just before 11 a.m. when Ours called police to report his brother Brian was holding him at gunpoint and would not let him leave.

It was determined, however, that the opposite was true and Dayne Ours was holding his brother at gunpoint, refusing to let him out of the house, officers reported Saturday.

After county sheriff’s deputy Detective Jeff Haugh spoke to both brothers on their cell phones, Dayne Ours opened the door and surrendered. There were no injuries.

Once Ours is charged, a hearing will be scheduled in East Liverpool Municipal Court, McKenzie said Monday.
