Argument over money leads to arrest

A Stillwater man was a arrested for fifth-degree domestic assault in connection with an incident involving his 21-year-old daughter last Friday.

The girl’s mother called poliSPD logo-1ce and reported that the girl was allegedly being held hostage in the family home at knifepoint. The caller’s husband, identified in police reports as Olusegun Adebayo Osunlana, had allegedly sent the woman a text message saying he was going to kill their daughter if their girl left the residence. Reports said the daughter is living with her parents.

Officers attempted to contact the 21-year-old in the residence, according to a report. After a few unsuccessful attempts, officers reached the girl, who said her father was not allowing her to leave and he was next to her in the residence, the report said. She told officers she was in her bedroom and her father was in the kitchen and he wasn’t threatening her with a knife.

The report said the girl told her father the police needed to speak to him and let them come to the door. When officers entered the residence, they took Osunlana into custody.

The report added that while leaving the scene, Osunlana became agitated and demanded to know how he could be charged with assault if he didn’t hurt anybody.

During questioning, Osunlana told officers he forbade his daughter from going to a nightclub because he wasn’t satisfied with her grades at college, the report said.

But the daughter told officers she wasn’t currently attending college and was working to save money to go back to school and her grades were not an issue during incident, the report said. The daughter told officers her father was upset \because she wouldn’t loan him money for a vehicle he wanted to purchase at an auction, the report added.

The girl told officers she was concerned her father would have hit her if she tried leaving, the report said. Although the daughter was adamant nothing physical had occurred, she feared her father’s threats. She added that her father is currently unemployed.

Osunlana has been arrested for domestic assault in the past, but the charges had been dismissed. As of Tuesday, Osunlana remained in the Washington County Jail.
