Around midnight Sunday, the Shawnee Police Department (SPD) made an arrest after a 911 call alerted them to a domestic disturbance.

“Upon arrival, officers heard screaming coming from inside the residence,” Cpl. Vivian Lozano-Stafford said.

They knocked and announced they were Shawnee police, she said.

“A little while later, the door opened and a male — later identified as Kenneth Riddle — aggressively exited the residence from the front door toward officers,” she said. “Riddle struck the first officer in the face and hit the second officer in the chest.”

Lozano-Stafford reported a struggle ensued with the officers before they gained control of Riddle and placed him in handcuffs.

“A female was located laying on the bedroom floor bleeding from her face and hands,” she said. “She was treated and released by REACT at the scene.”

Riddle was arrested for domestic assault and battery, interfering with a 911 call, assault and battery on two police officers and resisting arrest, Lozano-Stafford said.

He was transported to Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center where he was booked on those charges, she said.

Harrah School officials told reporters that Riddle had worked for the district for almost 20 years. He was placed on administrative leave until the charges are resolved.
