SUSPECT SURRENDERS TO END STAND-OFF IN DELTONA
A stand-off in Deltona sparked by a domestic quarrel Monday afternoon has ended with the peaceful surrender of the defendant.
The confrontation started shortly before 2 p.m. on Monday, when a woman flagged down a passing deputy and reported that while inside a residence at 1108 Wycliffe Street, her boyfriend had put a loaded gun to her head. The woman was able to make her way out of the residence and wasn’t injured. A number of Volusia County Sheriff’s patrol units, investigators, motors units and crisis negotiators responded to the scene, where they secured the neighborhood, blocked thru traffic and evacuated about a half-dozen homes as a precaution. Several other residents in the neighborhood were contacted by the Sheriff’s Office and told to stay indoors until the situation was resolved.
During the first two hours, the suspect -- 38-year-old David Bolt (DOB: 1/2/74) -- came out of the house and then went back in a couple of times and also was yelling things and throwing articles of clothing out the door. At about 4:35 p.m., Bolt came out for the last time to surrender to deputies. He’s facing criminal charges of aggravated assault, felony battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
