Newark Police arrest felon

Submitted By Chomnan Loth, Newark PD

On September 16, at about 8:18 a.m., Officers of the Newark Police Department responded to Motel 6, located at 5601 Mowry Avenue, to assist CHP with an attempt to serve a felony warrant on a male suspect. The suspect was considered armed and dangerous and was wanted by another outside law enforcement agency for a violent crime.

Newark Police Officers made contact with the suspect in one of the motel rooms but the suspect refused to surrender to police. After several failed negotiations, the Newark Police and Union City Police SWAT teams were activated. The suspect later surrendered peacefully to the SWAT officers.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Newark Police Department at (510) 570-7237. Information can also be left anonymously on the "Silent Witness" hotline at (510) 578-4965.
