Barricaded suspect arrested
Milpitas Police have arrested 26-year-old Milpitas resident Charles Khanh Nguyen for terrorist threats against police officers, resisting arrest, and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was arrested on Wednesday, October 2, when a Milpitas Police Officer responded to a domestic disturbance in the 1100 block of Stellar Way.
Nguyen, who had been involved in a verbal dispute with his family, barricaded himself alone in his bedroom with an eight-inch butcher knife. When officers attempted to contact Nguyen, he began threatening them and refusing to comply with their directives. He was extremely agitated and exhibited signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Officers negotiated with Nguyen for several hours and, at one point, he began slashing items in his bedroom while threatening the officers. Officers breached the door and with the aid of pepper spray and a Taser, Nguyen was taken into custody. Nguyen was examined and treated at a local hospital for a minor abrasion to his face and then booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail.
Anyone with any information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400 or online at www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov.
