A Novato man is being held in county jail on no bail after he apparently walked into a house.
At around 10:18 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, Sonoma Police received a call from a resident in the 800 block of Third Street West saying that someone was inside her house. When deputies arrived, they could hear someone inside the house yelling. The deputies told the man to come out, but he didn’t comply.
One of the deputies thought he knew who the suspect was based on his description.
When deputies found the intruder, he had his hands in his jacket and failed to take them out. Multiple deputies deployed multiple Tasers in order to subdue the intruder.
The victim told the deputies she had never seen the man before and that he apparently walked in the open back door.
The deputies arrested Wayne Rashad Freeman, 29, of Novato, on charges of felony burglary and resisting arrest. He is being held on those charges along with three counts of felony battery on a peace officer, felony resisting, possession of drug paraphernalia, and being under the influence of a controlled substance stemming from a Santa Rosa incident in August.
