Visalia Man Arrested After Threatening to Kill His Mom, Then Climbing on Roof to Get Away from Deputies

Around 8:20 a.m. on 9/17/19, TCSO Deputies were called to the 32000 Block of Lincoln in Visalia for threats being made.  

Deputies were told 56-year-old Enrique Carreon was threatening to kill his mother and burn the house down. Carreon began making the threats Monday night and continued Tuesday morning.  

The mother left the home when Carreon grabbed a knife from the kitchen and called 911 from a neighbor’s house. 

When Deputies arrived on scene, Carreon took off running. They found him on top of the roof of his mother’s home. He was taken into custody and booked at the Adult Pre-Trial Facility.
