On October 10, 2019 at approximately 1:24 a.m., Monterey Park Police Department officers responded to a home in the 500 block of S. Lincoln Avenue in the City of Monterey Park regarding a family disturbance.
When officers arrived on scene they discovered that a subject known to the family had entered the residence without permission and demanded to speak to his ex-girlfriend. An argument ensued inside the residence as the suspect began breaking items in the home. The subject armed himself with a knife then ran down a hallway, shoving an elderly female to the ground, and locked himself in a bedroom.
After an approximately three hour standoff, the subject was taken into custody with the assistance of the Monterey Park Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) and the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT).
The subject was arrested for elder abuse and transported to Los County Medical Center for treatment of his self inflicted injuries. The elderly female who was shoved to the ground was also transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The suspect is identified as Nicholas Charmack, 29, from Monterey Park.
