Man barricaded inside Chesterfield home surrenders to police
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — Police cars lined a Chesterfield neighborhood as a barricade situation played out for hours at a home Friday afternoon.
Chesterfield police confirmed that warrants were issued for the arrest of a 42-year-old man wanted for a domestic violence incident at a home in the 9900 block of Post Horn Drive.
Police said they received a 911 call about a domestic violence situation around 3 p.m. after Frank Clement allegedly brandished a gun inside a home. A woman and others inside the home were able to make it out safely.
According to Chesterfield police, Clement refused to come out. As a result, tactical response team and negotiators were called in.
Chesterfield police used a tactical distraction to lure Clement out of the home and he was taken into custody around 5:40 p.m.
Clements was charged with felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and a misdemeanor charge of brandishing a firearm in connection with the domestic violence incident.
The streets surrounding the home were blocked off as a precaution and residents were warned to stay indoors.
