A male Sacramento resident was arrested by the Oakley Police Department on April 13, 2022, following a police standoff.
The Department was notified mid-morning that bail bond agents were in the area of Star Street in Oakley. The agents were looking to apprehend Larry Davis, 43, who had several outstanding warrants for charges including torture, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, and domestic violence. At the time, Department assistance was not requested.
About an hour later, the agents requested assistance when Davis fled in the area of 2nd St., 3rd St., and E. Home Avenue. Oakley police officers arrived and attempted to take him into custody, but Davis jumped from rooftop to rooftop before barricading inside a house at the end of 3rd St. where he sought shelter in a basement.
Due to the severity of Davis’ crimes and his actions as he fled, a Canine Unit from the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office and the Oakley Police Department were summoned. One of the canines entered the basement to attempt an apprehension, but Davis struck the dog with a blunt force object. Davis then set a fire in the basement while the house was still occupied. Oakley officers extinguished the fire quickly, containing it to a small area. Davis remained non-compliant with the officers and refused to exit the basement, even while the fire was burning.
Davis continued to elude officers while in the basement by wedging himself into a small crawl space. At some point, he dismantled a sewage pipe from under the house, allowing raw sewage water to flow under the house and into the basement.
After an hour and a half, Davis was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for treatment. He was booked into the County jail for his crimes during this incident, including arson, battery on a police animal, and resisting arrest. The police animal was not seriously injured.
According to police, Larry Davis, a 43-year-old male from Sacramento, was being tracked down by bounty hunters after being wanted on multiple warrants for domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon, torture and false imprisonment.
Oakley Police arrived on scene and assisted in the search where they located Davis on a roof when he began jumping from roof to roof in an attempt to flee from bounty hunters and officers. Eventually, he ended up at 519 3rd Street.
He proceeded to run into a basement where a short time later he lit a fire inside the home—it was extinguished before it got out of control.
According to Chief Paul Beard, Davis was non-compliant and a sheriff K9 was deployed where Davis struck the K9 with an object, possibly a broom or similar object. He then entered underneath the home where he damaged the sewage line and plumbing to the home which exposed officers.
After approximately 90-minutes, he was physically removed and taken into custody.
Beard said there were no other injuries and no update on the K9 was available. Davis was transported to a local hospital and will then be transported to MDF for multiple additional charges.
