Fairfield Woman Arrested After SWAT Standoff

FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – A standoff involving a female suspect armed with knives came to an end with the suspect being taken away in handcuffs.

Police say a woman who lives at an apartment on Grande Circle called 911 Tuesday morning claimed another woman who had stayed at her home overnight was high on drugs, had thrown a barbell at the woman and threatened to kill her.

The woman and her son ran from the home and called police at around 6:30 a.m.

When police arrived at the apartment, the suspect barricaded herself in a back bedroom with kitchen knives and threatened to kill police and a police K9.

The apartment building was evacuated as a precaution and SWAT officers and crisis negotiators moved inside. After police tried again unsuccessfully to communicate with the suspect using a robot, SWAT officers moved in and took her into custody.

Coreion Johnson, 38, of Fairfield was booked into the Solano County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and making criminal threats.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at (707) 728-7600, the 24-hour tipline at (707) 728-7345 or Crime Stoppers at (707) 644-7867.
