LITTLEROCK – A 19-year-old man suspected of threatening his father with a machete at a Littlerock home was arrested Monday night after a more than three-hour standoff, authorities said.
Cesar Solis was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon that is not a firearm, according to LASD inmate records.
Around 7 p.m., deputies were called regarding a family disturbance at a home in the 10500 block of East Avenue S-6, according to Lt. Ken Wright of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Palmdale Station.
“Initial information we had was there’s a person [who] possibly swung a machete at someone,” Wright said, adding that the alleged victim was the one who called for help. “We came out here [and] the person who had called was outside. The person who had supposedly swung the machete was inside,” Wright said.
Deputies made numerous announcements, but the suspect refused to come out, according to Wright.
“We surrounded the location, prepared to handle the situation as might be necessary,” Wright said. “We ended up calling out some K-9 units. They made an announcement, and the suspect inside decided it would be best to come out.”
Solis eventually came out of the house, walking backward with his hands up. He dropped to his knees and was immediately handcuffed.
“As it turns out, he had a warrant unrelated to this matter,” Wright said. It was a misdemeanor warrant for corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant, according to jail records.
Solis is due in court Wednesday. He remains jailed, with bail for both matters totaling $105,000, according to LASD inmate records.
