Fremont Domestic Battery Suspect Surrenders to Police

A Fremont suspect who had been wanted on suspicion of domestic battery turned himself in to police Monday, a police spokeswoman said.

Investigators were interviewing 41-year-old Thomas Beltran, who was involved in a standoff with police on Saturday, according to Fremont police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.

The standoff at a home on Darrow Court started at about 9:20 a.m. Saturday when police got a call from a woman who said her boyfriend, Beltran, had allegedly battered her and that he was still in the home, police said.

Officers surrounded the property and tried to speak with Beltran, whom they believe was armed with a gun and ammunition. But when they entered the home at about 5 p.m. Saturday, he could not be found and was said to be

at large, police said.

Before the incident on Saturday, Beltran already had a warrant out for his arrest on a drug paraphernalia offense, Bosques said.

In addition, he now faces possible charges of domestic battery and being a felon in possession of ammunition, Bosques said.

Officers who searched the house on Darrow Court late Saturday found a BB gun and ammunition for a firearm but didn't find a firearm, according to Bosques.

Police said Beltran is a convicted felon with a violent criminal history.
