CARLSBAD–A local man was arrested in National City in connection with a domestic violence incident in Carlsbad.
On Friday afternoon, Carlsbad police received a call from a female claiming an acquaintance of hers had asked her to call 9-1-1 for her. Officers responded to the victim’s residence in the 2800 block of Cazadero Drive in Carlsbad and contacted the victim outside the home. The victim related she had been battered and threatened by her boyfriend, Corey Nicholas, 35, who was reportedly still inside the residence.
Officers attempted to contact Nicholas inside the home and by telephone but got no response. Believing Nicholas had barricaded himself inside the house to avoid arrest, the Carlsbad Police Department SWAT team was called to the scene. While preparing to enter the home to arrest Nicholas officers learned he was possibly in National City. The National City Police Department was contacted and asked to attempt to locate Nicholas.
About 8:02 p.m., National City police located Nicholas at a Walmart in National City and took him into custody. Carlsbad officers drove to National City, took custody of Nicholas and booked him into the San Diego County Jail for his threats and domestic violence.
During the incident neighboring residents were evacuated. The victim did not seek medical treatment and no other persons were injured.
