SWAT Team Convinces Suspect To Surrender

LA MESA -- Police surrounded a Lowell Avenue house Sunday night before convincing a felon with a warrant to surrender.

Police said just after 9 p.m., they received a report of a man that pushed a woman in the 4200 block of Lowell Avenue. Officers responded and spoke to the victim outside of the residence. During the investigation, it was determined that the male had an active felony warrant for his arrest for failing to register as a sex offender and was still inside the residence.

Officers spoke to the man through the locked screen door for several minutes, but he refused to come out. The suspect made verbal threats to the officers that he had a weapon and would not come out without a fight. La Mesa Police Department Special Response Team responded to the scene and after a short negotiation, the man  came out of the residence and was taken into custody without incident. The female victim was not injured.

Michael Wilson, 46, of La Mesa was booked at San Diego Central Jail.
