Middle School Put On Lockdown; Suspect was on Campus
Suspect broke into Several Homes
SALINAS—The Salinas Police Department arrested 18-year-old San Jose resident Treyshaun Holmes after he broke into two homes, and then evaded police and ran through a school before he was captured – oh, and lets not forget an indecent exposure incident, He was arrested for that too.
On Wednesday, Nov 5, Salinas Police responded to a woman’s call that claimed that a man armed with a knife broke into her home on the 400 block of Belmont Drive. The suspect fled while police were responding. Neither the caller nor her daughter were injured in the incident.
Salinas police had set up a perimeter and begun searching for the suspect when one officer spotted Holmes on the 800 block of Central Avenue. Police readjusted their perimeter but they could not locate the young man.
“After an interview it was determined that Treyshaun Holmes had ducked into a backyard of a resident to hide from police.” Salinas Police Commander Sheldon Bryan wrote. “He discover that the back door was unlocked and entered the house and burglarized it while the victims slept.”
Minutes after that, there were reports of a man walking down Marion Drive with his pants down, exposing himself. The description of the suspect matched that of Holmes. Officers spotted him on the rooftop of a home on Marion Drive.
As police closed in, he jumped from the roof down on to the rear athletic field of Washington Middle School. The School was placed on lockdown as the suspect ran through it onto Clay Street, where he was captured in a backyard of a home.
The lockdown was lifted about fifteen minutes after it began. Holmes still had property from the home on Central Ave in his possession when he was arrested. The victims of that burglary were unaware of it happening, but were able to identify all their property, which was eventually returned to them.
Holmes was booked into the Monterey County Jail on multiple charges that included residential burglary and trespassing.
