NAPA, Calif. (KRON) — A suspect was arrested for an armed robbery on Friday, the Napa Police Department (NPD) said in a Facebook post. The unidentified male suspect stole a number of items and brandished a knife at staff who tried to stop him.

Police then found the suspect walking southbound on Soscol Avenue where he pulled out a knife and yelled for officers to kill him.

As the armed suspect was considered to be a threat to the community, officers fired a bean bag shotgun at him. The suspect was then apprehended.

Police added that de-escalation techniques were used in Spanish to allow for a “safe surrender.” The knife used by the suspect (pictured above) was seized by police.
