Man arrested in San Mateo after SWAT standoff at apartment complex
August 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Residents of a San Mateo apartment building were evacuated Monday night as a police SWAT team tried to get an assault suspect out of one of the units, police said today.

The assault happened on Sunday when Shabo Atasuntsev, 27, allegedly got into a fight with his roommate in the apartment they share in the 2700 block of Edison Street, police Sgt. Rick Decker said.

Atasuntsev allegedly used a knife to slash his roommate in the upper body. When his roommate fell to the ground, he kept hitting him in the upper body, police said.

Police spotted Atasuntsev driving at about 6:15 p.m. Monday nearby at 27th Avenue and El Camino Real and tried to pull him over, but he allegedly fled from the car and into his apartment building, Decker said.

Believing he could become violent, police evacuated the building and a SWAT team shut down the area, police said. Officers could not make contact with him and eventually the SWAT team went into his apartment and found him hiding on a balcony.

He was arrested at about 12:40 a.m. today and the residents were allowed to return to their homes at about 1 a.m.

Police discovered that Atasuntsev also had an outstanding warrant in connection with an armed robbery. He is being held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats and the warrant.
