Man barricades himself in Antioch apartment, Saturday, surrenders without incident
By Sergeant Santiago Castillo, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau
Earlier today, at approximately 10:17 A.M., the Antioch Police were dispatched to an apartment in the 2100 block of Peppertree Way after a resident called from work requesting a security check of their apartment as their alarm was notifying them of an open front door. When officers arrived, they observed a male inside the apartment who abruptly shut and locked the front door barricading himself inside.
The homeowner indicated that nobody should be in the apartment, so a perimeter was set up around the apartment building. Officers were ultimately able to make verbal contact with the male inside who stated he lived in the apartment. After talking with the male, he peacefully surrendered himself and was taken into custody. Indicia and personal property was located inside the apartment belonging to the male indicating he may have standing in the apartment.
No further information (including the arrested party’s name) is being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
