Oceanside, CA–A man suspected of domestic violence at his residence was arrested following a standoff with police Sunday morning in Oceanside, authorities said.
Rosendo Ceballos, 32, of Oceanside and was taken into custody to be booked for multiple charges including domestic violence offenses, resisting arrest, and making criminal threats.
At 10:45 a.m., Oceanside police responded to a home on the 100 Block of Ely Street regarding a domestic violence incident. Officers were notified that there were several people, including children in the home, and a man armed with a knife, Oceanside Police Department said in a news release.
As officers arrived on the scene, Ceballos allegedly exited the house with a knife and walked toward the officers. When officers made attempts to safely detain Ceballos, he attempted to run back into the home.
Officers deployed bean bag rounds to divert Ceballos from the residence. He ran and hid in a garage area that has no connecting doors to the interior of the residence. Officers used the opportunity to immediately enter the residence and ensure all victims were removed from the area and brought to safety.
Ceballos reportedly began stabbing the garage door with a knife while making threats to shoot the officers. Officers worked to de-escalate the man, and the Crisis Negotiation Team officers responded and began leading negotiations. When Ceballos failed to cooperate with police, he armed himself with a butane torch, and threatened to light the house on fire or “blow it up.” The K9 unit was deployed to the scene to contact Ceballos. But he surrendered peacefully at around 1 p.m. and was arrested without further incident.
