On Friday, June 7, 2019, at approximately 7:29 AM, Concord Police Officers responded to the 1700 block of Thornwood Drive regarding a 911 call from a frantic woman. The woman called to report that her ex-boyfriend had gotten into her house and was “trying to kill her”. The woman said that she was inside of the residence with her three children. Officers arrived at the residence and found the woman’s two oldest children (10 and 12 years old) outside in front of the neighbor’s residence. The children said that the suspect was in the residence with the woman and another young child.
Once officers confirmed that the suspect was inside the residence with the woman and her youngest child, officers contacted the woman by her cell phone, and she confirmed that the suspect was armed and that she could not leave the residence.
After several minutes, Officers heard the woman in distress screaming for help, so they immediately forced entry into the residence and encountered the woman and the suspect. Officers were able to get the woman and child away from the suspect who was then taken into custody. Neither the woman nor the children were injured during this incident.
The suspect was identified as Concord resident 35-year-old Jasson Tan who is restrained from the woman. Tan was later booked at the Contra Costa County Jail.
This investigation into this incident is ongoing and no additional information will be released. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Concord Police Department Detective Sergeant Matt Cain at (925) 671-3235.
