Police Arrest Armed, Intoxicated Suspect at Local Hotel
Jun 21, 2017   10:07 AM

Just after midnight, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham, 4649 W. Houston Harte Expressway, for the report of an armed, incoherent subject who was alarming guests.

When Officers arrived, they were directed to the hotel’s rear exit where they observed a shirtless man who was armed with a large knife, handsaw, and hammer.

Officers attempted to establish communication with the man, who was acting aggressively and appeared to be under the influence of an unknown intoxicant, but the man did not respond to their verbal commands.

While Officers distracted the man, another Officer snuck up from behind and tackled him, which caused him to fall and lose control of the weapons.  He was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

The man, who identified himself to Officers as ‘Lucifer’, was taken to Shannon Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries he sustained from the tackle.  He was later identified as Frank Dominguez, III, 27, of San Angelo.

Dominguez was released from medical care and transported to the Tom Green County Jail where he was charged with Public Intoxication, Resist Arrest Search or Transport, Failure to Identify Giving False/Fictitious Information, and Criminal Trespass.

Officers canvassed the hotel to ensure there were no additional suspects and no guests were injured during the incident.

Bean Bag Round Ends Standoff
Jun 15, 2017   04:40 PM

At approximately 1100 am this morning, San Angelo Police Department officers were dispatched to the 800 block of N. Chadbourne Street in reference to a disturbance.  Upon arriving, they learned that an Aggravated Robbery occurred in which a suspect used a broken, jagged bottle to threaten an employee at a convenience store and steal property. 

Officers obtained surveillance video of the suspect, later identified as 56 year-old Julio Enriquez, and began searching the area for him.  A short time later, officers located Enriquez in the 1200 block of N. Farr Street.  As an officer confronted him, Enriquez retrieved the broken bottle and put it to his own neck.  Multiple officers arrived and attempted to negotiate with Enriquez.  Eventually, an officer attempted to utilize a Taser to take Enriquez into custody without serious injury.  The Taser was ineffective.  An SAPD supervisor then utilized a kinetic energy “bean bag” shotgun round, knocking Enriquez to the ground and disarming him in the process.  Enriquez was taken into custody without further incident. 

Enriquez was ultimately arrested for Aggravated Robbery.
