Suspect arrested for Residential Burglary and Domestic Violence Order violations after short standoff for the second time this week.
On December 10th, 2020 just after 9:15 AM, Spokane Police responded to a residence in the 3700 block of W. Bismark Ave., for the report of a violation of a Domestic Violence No-Contact Order. Bail agents outside the residence called in a reported struggle between a male and female inside the residence.
The bail agents were there regarding 37 year old Andrew P. Perry, who had been arrested from the same residence after an incident on December 7th where he assaulted a tow truck driver, and damaged the tow truck. Perry was also arrested for violating a Domestic Violence No-Contact order which prevented him from being inside the residence or having contact with the victim. Perry was bonded out of jail through a bail bonds company.
Upon the arrival of the Spokane Police Officers, they determined Perry was again inside the residence which was another violation of the Domestic Violence No-Contact order. Perry claimed to be armed and refused to come outside.
Due to Perry claiming to be armed inside the residence, in violation of the order, and the outstanding danger he presented to the community, Officers, and himself, the Spokane Police SWAT team responded to the residence. Shortly after the arrival of the SWAT Officers and equipment, Perry exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
Perry was booked into the Spokane County Jail for new charges Residential Burglary and multiple violations of the Domestic Violence No-Contact Order.
Perry has previous convictions for Domestic Violence to include Felony Assault.
