SAN DIEGO — A parolee wanted on an arrest warrant locked himself in a Golden Hill home Tuesday when police contacted him, prompting a SWAT standoff and road closures in the area.
The suspect slammed the front door of a motor home parked in the 2700 block of Broadway “in (an) officer’s face” and was believed to be holed up inside shortly after 9:30 a.m., SDPD spokesman Matt Tortorella said. By 12:30 p.m., four SWAT officers were seen walking into the motor home and exiting a minute later without the suspect.

Patrol personnel closed down the street in front of the residence along with a block of E Street just to the south. A special weapons and tactics team took up positions in the area while police tried to persuade the parolee, who officers called Jason, to surrender.
The man was seen walking out of the house with his hands behind his head around 2:15 p.m. Police took the man into custody.
