SLCPD SWAT Team Safely Resolve Domestic Violence Incident

 

SALT LAKE CITY — A collaborative effort between the Salt Lake City Police Department’s SWAT Team, SLCPD patrol officers, and crisis negotiators resulted in the arrest of a 31-year-old man who refused to come out of his home after being involved in a domestic disturbance.

This investigation started at 10:02 a.m. on Thursday, June 22, 2023, when SLC911 got a call about a domestic disturbance  at an apartment near 1800 West Independence Boulevard.

The victim told officers that her boyfriend, Alejandro Navarro, damaged property inside their apartment and assaulted her in front of their child.

The victim safely got out of the home and spoke with officers. She told them her child was safe with a family member. Officers tried contacting Navarro several times but he refused to exit the home.

Officers continued their attempts to get Navarro to peacefully surrender.

The on-scene incident commander requested the assistance of SLCPD SWAT and Crisis Negotiators. These highly trained teams provide patrol officers with additional resources.

As the SLCPD’s SWAT Team began arriving and as SLCPD negotiators began their attempts to contact Navarro he came out of the apartment  peacefully surrendered.

Paramedics treated Navarro for injuries unrelated to SLCPD’s response.  .

Officers took Navarro to the Salt Lake County Metro Jail and booked him on charges of Assault, Criminal Mischief, Domestic Violence in the Presence of a Child, Obstruction of Justice, Intoxication, and several active warrants.

Four photos from the scene are being released. Media may use these photos with proper credit to the Salt Lake City Police Department.

Charges are only allegations, and every arrested person is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

The Salt Lake City Police Department reminds our community of the resources available to support survivors of domestic violence in Utah.
