On Friday, October 12, 2018, at about 3:15 p.m., officers responded to the 1000 block of North A Street in central Oxnard reference a man threatening to kill his mom with a knife. Officers were told the man was Jonathan Gonzalez, 35-years-old. The mom escaped to the alley. Gonzalez retreated to the garage and into a vehicle inside when officers arrived. He was uncooperative, and officers surrounded the area.
Gonzalez barricaded himself in the vehicle in the garage for hours until the standoff ended using a variety of methods. A knife was found inside the vehicle.
This was the third time in two days police had been called to the house. On Thursday, officers were called to the house at about 11 a.m. when Gonzalez threatened to hurt his mother. It was believed that he was suffering from an acute mental health problem. Crisis Intervention Officers were able to de-escalate the situation and collaborate with Behavioral Health without the situation becoming more volatile.
Officers returned to the house at about 10 a.m. Friday after another call from Gonzalez’s mother, where again she feared for her life. Police were able to get the family to leave the house unharmed.
Gonzalez was arrested after the 4-hour standoff for assault with a deadly weapon and making criminal threats.
