When officers arrived on scene it was discovered that a female adult assaulted two individuals with a knife while stealing one of the victim’s cellular telephone. The suspect then retreated to her residence and barricaded herself inside. Using a loudspeaker, APD officers established communication with the suspect and directed her to surrender, but she refused. For one hour, APD officers attempted to negotiate the suspects surrender. At approx. 10:25, the suspect exited the rear of her residence and was taken into custody.
The suspect was then transported by ambulance to Twin Cities Hospital for treatment and her care was later transferred to San Luis Obispo County Mental Health based upon the circumstances of the suspect’s illness.
