Campbell Police Officers Peacefully Resolve a Barricade Incident of Over Seven Hours

Campbell, CA – Campbell Police officers arrest numerous suspects after a seven-hour barricade incident involving child endangerment and other felony charges.
On Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 10:16 am Campbell Police officers were called to a residence on the 100 block of W. Rincon for a male, asking for an ambulance due to a mental health crisis. Officers responded with Santa Clara County Fire and EMS. As officers arrived, the suspect took his wife inside the residence and held her in a bedroom against her will.
Officers entered the residence and located two individuals inside a vehicle in the garage along with several children. Officers attempted to get them to exit the vehicle and they refused. Eventually both individuals in the vehicle were arrested for child endangerment and resisting arrest. Officers safely removed the children from the area where they were placed in the custody of Child Protective Services.
After several attempts to speak with the barricaded subject, he informed Campbell officers that he wanted to hurt himself and was not willing to let his wife leave the apartment. Campbell’s Crisis Negation Team (CNT) and SWAT responded immediately to the scene and mutual aid was requested from neighboring agencies. After over seven hours of negotiating, both the male subject and his wife peacefully surrendered and exited the residence.
During a search of the residence following the surrender, a male subject was located hiding in the attic. The male was found to be on parole for burglary and had a warrant for violating his parole. He also had two outstanding felony warrants; one for burglary, and the second for child abuse and second degree robbery.
All the adult subjects have been charged with child endangerment based on their actions during this incident and the dangerous drug environment they placed the children in.
A special thank you to the Santa Clara County Fire Department for their incident support, Santa Clara Police Department for their swift response with their armored vehicle, Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office for assisting with securing our perimeter, and Los Gatos Police Department for covering all additional calls in Campbell.
Chief Gary Berg reflected on the day saying, “I am incredibly proud of the exceptional work performed today under very challenging circumstances. Utilizing their training, patience, and compassion, our officers and professional staff safely and successfully resolved this incident through a great team effort. The culmination of a very long and trying day is a safer Campbell where the individuals who broke the law and created a dangerous situation are in jail, and the innocent children are in a safe environment.”
