UPDATED: SWAT arrests wanted felon after standoff at Spanaway house

UPDATE as of 9:18 p.m. Bischoff surrendered about 9:15 p.m. after the SWAT team filled the house with gas. He has been taken into custody.

INITIAL POST: A Pierce County sheriff’s SWAT team has surrounded a house near Spanaway where a convicted felon wanted for several crimes is believed to be holed up.

Douglas Alfred Bischoff, 24, of Spanaway, has apparently barricaded himself inside a house in the 4200 block 213th Court East.

“We believe we have him trapped, and he’s in the house alone,” sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

Troyer warned that any explosions heard are made by the SWAT team to distract Bischoff or make entry into the home.

A bench warrant was issued Tuesday for Bischoff for allegedly assaulting two women at his apartment last week. He faces one count of unlawful imprisonment, one count of third-degree theft and four counts of unlawful possession of a firearm in that case.

Another man, 18-year-old Carlos Aguirre, was also charged with unlawful imprisonment and third-degree theft.

According to charging papers:

Bischoff met two women at a convenience store and they accompanied him home, where they drank alcohol. At some point, Bischoff used a stun gun to shock both women and then struck one of the victims in the head several times.

The women tried to leave, but were stopped and thrown to the floor. They eventually escaped and called the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

A SWAT team served a search warrant at the apartment last week and arrested Aguirre, who claimed he was asleep during the incident. Bischoff was able to escape.

Recovered from the home were a purse and iPhone belonging to one of the victims, and four guns – an SKS rifle, a 12 gauge shotgun, a .22 caliber pistol and a .270 caliber rifle hidden in the bathroom.

    Well, if he’s trapped, call out the PC Fire Dept. Set the house on fire, you know, for training.

    Thanks for the story. Was wondering what was going on with all the armored cars….

    When the cops tear apart a house that doesn’t belong to the guy they are looking for thats not very cool. They did that to a woman not long ago and last I heard they were not going to pick up the tab. Maybe they changed their mind after the story aired who knows. Either way the guy stunned and imprisoned someone? Pull him out and burn him and spare the house.

    That sucks, but thats what happens when you break the law. Maybe he should of thought that having a gun as a felon wasnt a good idea… it should hurt to be stupid

    It was the other guy who did all the shit, not the guys who lives in the house. His PARENTS own the house, they shouldent have to pay for something they had nothing to do with.

  6. drkracker151 says:

    For kingpins friends sake I hope none of the bullets over penetrate this guy and hit the drywall.

  7. lovethemountains says:

    kingpins151, you are so elequent and intelligent sounding. Not! Actually, you sound about the same caliber as the dirtbag being sought.

  8. bullmax23 says:

    Of course the parents shouldnt have to pay. All blame always gets blamed on the parents. The dude is 24, a felon, an idiot, and should be held responsible for everything. However the way our screwed up system is, it doesnt matter, they probably will have to pay for all the damages anyways.

  9. yea, im sure hes 100% innocent and is wondering why the SWAT team is outside.hahaha

  10. gaguirre11 says:

    it’s not his parents house. don’t talk if you don’t know please.

  11. lovethemountains says:

    whatthehell, what is “radcist?”

    lovethemountains asks:

    whatthehell, what is “radcist?”

    Someone with an irrational bias against radishes.

  13. lovethemountains says:

    Hmm,Regfool2, that sounds reasonable. Thank you.

  14. Irritated says:

    I thought it was someone with an irrational bias against things that are rad. I guess I was wrong…

    Hope they would have killed him. I saw two fat women talking to a cop and came to find out that it was the felon girlfriend(high school senior, smoking like a chimney, weird tatoos all other and looking like s#@%..) and her mother(?). I guess they were trying to talk the cop into letting the girlfriend talk her boyfriend down and surrender. If he listened to her or if she was that good at telling him what the right to do, he wouldn’t have been in a situation like this at the first place. Sad to a peaceful, gated community go through seven hours of bs like that for a douchbag. Heard it’s his third strike, hope he stay behind bars forever. This society have so much things to deal with now that we don’t have time to deal with those who are determined to stay behind.
