Arroyo Grande man arrested for sexual assault
June 17, 2014
Officers arrested an Arroyo Grande man Sunday on charges of sexual assault and sodomy after a 12-hour standoff in Curry County Oregon.
On Saturday evening at about 11 p.m., officers went to a home off U.S. Highway 101 where Lorenzo Ignacio King, 42, was house sitting. The plan was to arrest King for the alleged sexual assault of a woman he met in a bar in Brookings.
However, King barricaded himself in a backroom and threatened to kill anyone who tried to enter the room. Officers then asked the state police SWAT team for assistance.
A 12-hour standoff ended after police used tear gas and a stun gun on King.
Once King was in custody, officers discovered he was bleeding heavily from what appeared to be several self-inflicted stab wounds to his leg. Emergency medical personal transported King by helicopter to the Bay Area Hospital.
