REDDING, Calif.—Redding Police say that around 6 a.m. Monday they were dispatched to a home on the 2600 block of Park Marina Drive.

The caller said that an unknown man was breaking windows and trying to get into the home.

Officers arrived on scene and contacted suspect Ernak Altankov, a 34 year old transient on the front deck of the home.

Altankov refused the officers demands to exit the deck and then armed himself with a 4 foot long wooden flag pole.

Officers continued to command Altankov to drop the pole and exit the deck but he refused.

Officers used a taser and less lethal beanbag shotgun in attempts to subdue Altankov and keep the residents in the home safe.
Both the taser and beanbag shotgun were ineffective.

K9 Otto was then deployed and assisted in the taking down of Altankov.

Altankov assaulted an officer and K9 Otto during the arrest process.

The officer sustained minor injuries and K9 Otto was uninjured from the assault.

Altankov was arrested for attempted burglary, assault on a peace officer, assault on a police K9, vandalism, and resisting arrest.

He was transported to the Shasta Regional Medical Center where he is receiving medical treatment prior to his booking into the Shasta County Jail.
