OCEANO — A man was arrested Saturday morning in Oceano after barricading himself in a home for several hours, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office reported.
At approximately 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, July 7, deputies were called to the 1300 block of Norswing Drive in Oceano for a report of felony vandalism. The suspect, David Angello, 42, was reportedly smashing windows inside the residence he shared with a relative.
When deputies arrived, Angello retreated inside the home to a bedroom, brandished a weapon at the deputies and threatened them, SLOSO reported. The SLOSO SWAT team known as the Special Enforcement Detail (SED) was called out and quickly set up a perimeter around the house. Neighbors were evacuated or told to shelter in place in their homes as a safety precaution. SED members were in constant contact with Angello during this incident.
At approximately 10:30 a.m., Angello stepped outside the home, SLOSO reported. At that time SED members utilized a less lethal use of force, a rubber projectile to disable Angello. SED members apprehended Angello with the assistance of a Sheriff’s Office K9 and he was taken into custody without further incident. Angello was taken to a local hospital for a dog bite injury.
Angello was transported to County Jail and will face charges of suspicion of felony vandalism, brandishing a firearm at a peace officer and resisting a peace officer by means of threats or violence.
