FAIRFIELD — Police responded Tuesday morning to a report of an intruder inside a Green Valley house and arrived to find a man, armed two knives and wearing a mask, on the driveway.

Police arrested the masked man with the help of a police dog, Lt. Randy Fenn said as he stood in front of the house on the 5000 block of Golden Prairie Court. The police dog bit the man, who got taken to NorthBay Medical Center with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, he said.

A police press release identified the suspect as Alvin Delosreyes, 43, of Vallejo. He was arrested on suspicion of burglary, felony criminal trespass and obstructing law enforcement officers. He has prior law enforcement contacts related to driving under the influence, obstructing law enforcement personnel, vandalism, making criminal threats and assault on emergency personnel, the press release said.

Delosreyes knew the people who lived in the house, but didn’t have permission to be there, the press release said.

The incident began at 7:09 a.m. A woman called 911 and said she could hear someone trying to break into her house on Golden Prairie Court. The dispatcher stayed on the phone with her. Later, she said she could hear someone inside the house, Fenn said. She was not injured during the incident.

When police found Delosreyes in the driveway, he dropped the two knives, but then became combative, the press release said. A police officer received minor injuries to his hand in the ensuing altercation and got treated and released from an area hospital, it said.

The incident took place in a Green Valley subdivision of two-story homes built near an artificial lake. After the incident, a small amount of what appeared to be blood could be seen on the driveway of the Golden Prairie Court home.

    Barry, you need to drop the word "GOT" from your vocabulary.

    You can always tell it's a Barry story from the "got" somewhere in the first paragraph.

    Hilarious! In every case over the years and I heard a lot of them, when the dog was turned loose the next stop was always NorthBay! Many years ago, my uncle was an Antioch cop and had the first Canine officer on the force. "Anchor" was a great dog but I wouldn't have wanted him chasing me!
