Danielle Gash and her daughter are home safe in Callahan after a 24-hour ordeal. Gash tells our partner Action News in an exclusive interview that her ex-boyfriend had been holding her and her daughter hostage inside his home since Tuesday night.
According to Action News, Gash says she went to her ex-boyfriend Delbert Johnson's Kingsland home to collect some of her things. When she did, she says Johnson took her keys and her phone and refused to let the mother and daughter leave.
Gash says Johnson only allowed her to text her mom, but told her what to say in the conversation.
Wednesday, Gash says Johnson drove the pair to Macon to see his dad. When they returned to Kingsland she resisted going back inside Johnson's home. That's when Gash says a detective showed up at the home. She grabbed her daughter and ran to safety.
From the last update, Johnson remains in a standoff with police in Kingsland.
