Domestic Violence Suspect Tased Inside Denny’s After Pretending To Have Gun, After Incident at Travelodge


At about 12:08am Friday morning, Officer Conrad was flagged down and advised that his suspect from a domestic violence incident he had handled a few hours prior was inside Denny’s in the 1900 block of Lander Avenue.

Conrad made his way inside Denny’s and located his suspect, Washington Perez, 33, of Modesto, sitting at a booth with his victim.

Conrad attempted to arrest Perez, but Perez resisted by placing his hands inside his jacket and refusing to show them, acting as if he was in possession of a firearm.

Conrad put Perez at gunpoint and waited for additional units to arrive. Officer Rocha then arrived and ended up deploying his TASER on Perez.

Perez was then taken into custody.

American Medical Response was requested for a check out. Their supervisor arrived on scene and Perez refused any assistance, so the ambulance was canceled.

The domestic violence incident had occurred at 10:41pm at the Travelodge in the 200 block of W. Glenwood Avenue.

Officers had responded to a battery in progress in the parking lot of the motel and contacted the victim, but Perez had already fled the scene. Through the investigation, Perez was able to be identified and the incident was determined to be domestic violence.

Perez was also discovered at the time to have a $50,500 misdemeanor warrant out of Modesto for domestic battery.

Perez was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of domestic battery and obstructing or resisting a peace officer, as well as his warrant.
