FAIRFIELD — A Santa Barbara Way resident returned home from shopping Tuesday afternoon to find Fairfield police and Solano County sheriff’s deputies surrounding her house, trying to coax a 22-year-old wanted felony suspect out of her attic after he had broken into her house during a foot chase and tried hiding there.

“That’s my house,” was the stunned 62-year-old woman’s first comment on realizing which house the police were surrounding.

She added later that she was glad she was not at home when the man broke in.

It took more than two hours to get David Anthony McDaniels of Suisun City out of the attic of the single-story home while the 62-year-old woman, who declined to be identified, waited in her car a block away.

The standoff started at 1:45 p.m. when detectives from the Solano County Sheriff’s Enforcement Team tried to contact McDaniels on the 200 block of East Tabor Avenue. McDaniels was wanted for a felony warrant, domestic violence and probation violations.

McDaniels fled, jumping fences into backyards along Santa Barbara Way before breaking into the woman’s house via a sliding glass door in the back and slithering into her attic.

Police broke through the front door, searched the house and found McDaniels, who refused to come out of the attic. They removed the woman’s small dog before firing pepper balls into the attic. Once they put a camera into the attic and showed McDaniels that the police could see him, the man surrendered.

McDaniels was turned over to the Sheriff’s Enforcement Team. He was booked into Solano County jail and faces new allegations of felony burglary.

    David Anthony McDaniels How brave the perp must feel to be wanted for ""domestic violence"" but hides like the Coward he is when faced with police and real men. Only a coward batters a woman.

    Domestic Violence doesn't necessarily imply he beat a woman...he may have been beating his boyfriend. Hopefully when he gets to jail he and his new boyfriend get along better.

    That's true Matt. Couldn't it also be a sibling or parent? Doesn't the parent have to be a certain age for it to be called elder abuse, or would it still be DV?

    This is so sad for the homeowner. I am super happy she wasn't home at the time, and I'm happy the police removed her dog before they started firing pepper balls. I'm also glad they removed the dog so it didn't go out the broken door, or get cut on glass. Will the city reimburse her the cost of replacing the door?

    We need to think more about revenue here. The elderly lady should have been arrested for having a home susceptible to being broken into. It also took police more time to remove the dog, and we all know that time is money.

    California seems to be a breeding ground for poverty and crime. Your state is chock full of creeps and no gooders and your rotten foul government's coddling of the same curdles my stomach and makes me want to hurl each day.

    David McDaniels is a good person and I don't care what is said about him he wasn't hiding because he was afraid he was hiding because he didn't want to go to jail. He wants nothing more then to be with his children . If the home owner would have been home he would have never entered her home. And if she was there when he entered her home he would not have harmed her. I no this forsure. He is very misunderstood look how people are so quick to judge. Fairfield and Suisun police harrass him in a daily basis. I no him very well he has been raised in suisun nd had a few run ends. I witnessed police harassing him and all he was doing was sitting in my car nd we got pulled over so a cop could put him threw a hard time. He has his issues but dont we all.Domestic violence is never ok but trust me I no 1st hand how horrible he feels I am extremely close with him. God gave him and I a very special blessing to share for life. And I will always love him no matter what.
