17 yr old male arrested on warrants after one hour standoff with deputies

DATE/TIME: August 19, 2018 / 1223 hours

INCIDENT: Suicidal Subject / Warrant Arrest

LOCATION: 34800 Block of Acacia Avenue

SUSPECT(S): Male Juvenile, 17 years of age

VICTIM(S): Female Juvenile

SUMMARY: On Sunday, August 20th, at approximately 12:23 pm, a verbal disturbance between a male and female juvenile was reported by their mother, who was not at the location. It was reported the male juvenile had a gun and would hurt himself. The juvenile had a no-bail warrant for his arrest.

Upon arrival, deputies could hear a male voice yelling inside the residence. A perimeter was established, and deputies attempted to make contact with the subject inside. No response came from either juvenile; deputies received information that the female juvenile may have been injured by the male. The male juvenile threatened to kill himself and threatened to shoot deputies if they approached. Based on the belief there was an armed suspect with a hostage inside the residence, the Specialized Enforcement Division (SED) was requested.

Deputies received a cell phone number for one of the juveniles, and Sergeant Emon talked to the male juvenile and convinced him to surrender. After an approximate one-hour standoff, the male juvenile came out unarmed and was taken into custody without incident. The female juvenile was found to be uninjured.

A search warrant was served to recover the weapon(s) inside the residence. A BB gun was recovered, but no other weapons were located. The male juvenile was taken to a local hospital for a psychological evaluation. Upon being medically cleared, he will be booked on his arrest warrant and additional charges may be requested.
