Killeen Police Arrest One After Standoff
Killeen Police involved in early morning standoff on Armadillo Drive ends peacefully.
Officers responded to 2701 Armadillo Drive, after receiving a 911 call at 3:50am, on Friday, August 08, 2014, in reference to a domestic disturbance. Upon their arrival, they were told a female had been assaulted by her boyfriend.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a male and female were involved in a verbal disagreement that turned physical and the male had left the residence prior to the officers’ arrival. A short time later, officers were notified that the suspect had returned to the residence and were advised that the victim was being held against her will and there was a possibly weapon involved. After several attempts were made to speak to the suspect, the Tactical Response Unit was deployed. For approximately two hours, members of the unit spoke to the suspect on and off and convinced him to surrender; at 8:52am, he was taken into custody, without incident, and transported to the Killeen City Jail. The female was released unharmed.
The suspect, 31 year old Andres Carrisalez of Killeen, is being charged with Assault with Bodily Injury on a Family Member, outstanding traffic warrants and a warrant for Human Trafficking by the U.S. Marshals Office.
