Case Number: 1509150094

Corpus Christi Police arrested 26-year-old Quinton Ellison (9/21/1988) for aggravated assault after he threatened people with a weapon and then barricaded himself in a house on the 300 block of Brooks Drive Tuesday afternoon.

Corpus Christi Police responded to a complaint of a disturbance with a weapon a little after 1pm on the 300 block of Brooks Drive Tuesday afternoon. Officers arrived and Ellison locked himself in a home and refused to come out to speak to Officers. A 46-year-old woman, a 28-year-old man and a 25-year-old man told Officers they believed Ellison was under the influence of some type of drugs and threatened them with a large knife, but no one was injured. Officers requested additional resources in order to resolve the situation.

The Corpus Christi Police SWAT Team, Hostage Negotiation Team, and Detectives arrived to assist the patrol officers. The 300 block of Brooks was closed to traffic at about 1:45pm. The Hostage Negotiation Team gathered information in which they believed there were no firearms accessible to Ellison and there was no other person inside the home. Ellison surrendered peacefully at 4:15pm and the road was reopened to normal use.

Ellison was arrested for aggravated assault, a second degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Officers delivered Ellison to the city detention center. No injuries were reported that were related to this event.
