A parolee was arrested Sunday night on Sherwood Circle after police responded to a report of a loud noise in front of the residence, according to Napa police.
Alberto Quezada, 33, of Napa, was found after an anonymous person called dispatch to report that Quezada was in a parked car on the opposite side of the street, Capt. Jeff Troendly said.
When Quezada could not be located, police suspected a ruse. They returned to the scene of the original call where people outside the home denied knowing him, police said.
That’s when the residents arrived and allowed police to search their home for Quezada, a known parolee with a violent history, police said.
Quezada was allegedly hiding under some blankets in an upstairs bedroom, police said. Also in the bedroom were four frightened children who had no idea who Quezada was, Troendly said.
Quezada allegedly fought with the officers before he was subdued, Troendly said.
He was booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of obstructing police, burglary, child endangerment, probation and parole violation, police said.
