“This morning, at approximately 5:43 am, Dispatch received a call from a woman stating she had been assaulted by her boyfriend and threatened with a firearm at a hotel located in the 2100 block of N. Texas Street. The victim was able to escape and directed officers to the hotel room where the incident occurred.
Officers made several attempts to speak with the male in the hotel room but when they could not, deployed the “BearCat”, due to the firearm threat. The BearCat is a rescue vehicle that provides an armored barrier between a known armed suspect and the community.
Officers again issued verbal commands to the room’s occupant but when the commands were met with silence, a distraction device was deployed. The device emitted a loud bang that would have been heard in the surrounding area.
Following use of the device, police made visual contact and quickly entered the hotel room, where the man was discovered on the bed with a loaded 9 mm handgun. He resisted officer’s attempts to detain him and a taser was deployed. 28-year-old Juan Mora Cirilo (residence unknown) was taken into custody without further injury to officers or to himself.
Drugs were recovered in the room, and it was revealed that Cirilo had used narcotics the previous night. He was transferred to a local hospital for medical clearance and subsequently booked into Solano County Jail for domestic violence, narcotics and weapons related offenses.
