Man arrested after barricading inside Boulder home for 12 hours

A shelter-in-place was issued Tuesday morning in the area of 17th Street and Yarmouth Avenue in Boulder.

BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder Police arrested a man on Tuesday morning suspected of breaking into a home and barricading himself inside for about 12 hours.

The woman who owned the home in the 4600 block of 16th Street called police about 8:09 p.m. Monday about a man outside her home. She knew the man, who was not allowed to be there due to a protection order, according to a Boulder Police Department news release.

The homeowner wasn't inside the house at the time and saw the man break into the home via surveillance video, police said.

Officers on scene saw the man inside the home with what they thought was a firearm. The man covered the windows and refused to come out.

The Boulder Police SWAT team was activated at 11 p.m., and a shelter-in-place was issued to the surrounding area at 11:07 p.m.

The man caused damage to the inside of the home as well as to police equipment, police said. He surrendered about 8:10 a.m. Tuesday, after officers used less-lethal munitions and a Boulder County Sheriff's Office police dog.

He was taken into custody without injury to anyone and faces multiple felony charges, police said.
