UPDATE: Man surrenders, ending afternoon standoff in Davis

A 26-year-old man surrendered to Davis police shortly before 7 p.m. today following a standoff at a home where officers had attempted to serve him with a restraining order.

Police Department spokesman Lt. Paul Doroshov said David Manuel Cervantes was arrested on a warrant for weapons charges related to a prior incident. He said he did not know whether new charges would be filed as a result of the stand-off.

He said Cervantes barricaded himself in a home on Adrian Drive in east Davis after officers attempted to serve him with a restraining order about 1:40 p.m. Cervantes refused to come the the door. In the process of trying to make contact with Cervantes, officers learned of the Yolo County warrant.

Because of the weapons charges and believing Cervantes might be armed, officers did not try to force their way into the residence, and instead called for the SWAT team and negotiators. After repeated efforts to contact Cervantes, negotiators finally got a response and were able to talk Cervantes into surrendering.

Doroshov said no shots were fired and no one was injured.

Several residences in the immediate area were evacuated during the standoff as a precaution, he said.
