Armed suspect surrenders after Escondido standoff

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an armed suspect surrendered and was arrested outside his San Diego County home following a standoff with police that lasted several hours.

Escondido Police Sgt. Joaquin Naranjo said Sunday a SWAT team and negotiators were called after 48-year-old Charles Osterholtz refused to come out of his house.

Officers originally responded late Saturday after a report of a domestic dispute involving Osterholtz and a woman. Police say Osterholtz stole a revolver from the woman's home and fled to his house.

City News Service reports Osterholtz walked out and surrendered at 2:30 a.m. and he was arrested on suspicion of felony possession of a firearm and robbery.
