A man wanted for allegedly violating the terms of his parole barricaded himself at a former lover’s home Tuesday morning, causing Long Beach police to dispatch a SWAT team, authorities said.
Officers were initially dispatched to a possible burglary on the 1700 block of Coronado Avenue on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:54AM, according to Brad Johnson of the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD).
Arriving officers learned the incident involved an ex-boyfriend who was unwelcome and who is wanted for a parole violation, he added.
“Officers, believing he was inside, ordered the suspect out but no one responded to their commands,” Johnson said. “The SWAT team was then activated regarding a possible barricaded suspect situation.”
The suspect was arrested without incident just before 12:30PM after he surrendered himself to police, according to Sgt. Brad Johnson.
The investigation remains ongoing.
