Wanted sex offender finally surrenders to police

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CNS) - A convicted sex offender was back behind bars Monday, accused of briefly barricading himself inside a home in La Mesa and threatening to harm officers before surrendering.

Officers were called to the home in the 4200 block of Lowell Ave. shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday to investigate a report that a man had pushed a woman, according to a La Mesa police statement.

Once there, they found the woman uninjured outside the home and learned the man -- identified as 46-year-old Michael Raphael Wilson -- was named in a felony arrest warrant for failing to register as a sex offender, police said.

Officers spoke to the man through a locked screen door for several minutes but he allegedly refused to come outside the home, saying he had a weapon and would not come out without a fight. But after a short negotiation, he came out voluntarily without any violence, police said.

Wilson was convicted of annoying or molesting a child under 18, according to the Megan's Law database, which showed him living as a transient. The database also showed he has been in violation of registration requirements since Oct. 15, 2007.

Wilson was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender. He could be arraigned as early as Wednesday morning, according to jail records.
