Standoff in Fremont ends peacefully

On July 12th at approximately 3:21 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call reporting an adult male who threatened his parents with a baseball bat in a house in the 4000  block of Fremont Avenue North.  Upon arrival officers surrounded the residence and secured the victims in an alley.  The 52-year-old male suspect barricaded himself inside the house and refused to come out.

SWAT team officers and negotiators arrived on scene shortly thereafter.  After unsuccessful attempts to get the suspect to surrender and come outside, SWAT officers made entry and recovered the suspect from the attic area of the residence without incident.

The suspect was booked into the King County Jail on felony domestic violence charges.
