Hostage suspect arrested

Columbus police say a man wanted in multiple crimes was arrested following a hostage situation Tuesday.

Police say Shane Thoman was reportedly inside a home on 42nd Street when hostage negotiators and the Swat Team responded with arrest and search warrants.

Thoman allegedly held a female hostage with a knife when police arrived.

He was eventually arrested and no one was hurt. 

Thoman was wanted in a home invasion in mid April, where a man was shot and his vehicle was also stolen along with a carjacking at a Columbus Wal-Mart in mid March.
