(KRON) — The Mountain View Police Department has safely resolved an incident with a barricaded individual at CSA. Earlier, crisis negotiators with the department were working to resolve the situation. According to a tweet from the department, the individual was involved in a burglary.
Part of Stierlin Road was closed as a result of the incident. It’s not yet clear whether the road has fully reopened.
Mountain View Police said Wednesday evening that officers responded to the 200 block of Stierlin Road before 7:00 a.m. for reports of a burglary. Officers learned that a man was inside the building, which houses the Community Services Agency.
The man refused to leave the building, and crisis negotiators were called in to help. The man, who was identified as John Rivera, 38, eventually left the building. While officers attempted to detain him, he resisted and tried to re-enter the building. An officer deployed his taser to prevent Rivera from barricading himself again.
Rivera was taken to a hospital for a precautionary evaluation, but was not injured, police said. He will be booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on charges of vandalism and burglary.
