Suspect in Los Angeles high-speed pursuit identified after chase, armed standoff with police

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors have identified the wanted man who climbed onto rooftops in a San Fernando Valley neighborhood while armed with a rifle after a freeway chase today, and then barricaded himself in a home for several hours.

A felony complaint for an arrest warrant says 41-year-old Nolan Perez was charged with seven felony counts including stalking and criminal threats against a woman believed to be his ex-girlfriend between May 19 and June 6.

Perez has multiple prior convictions including for domestic violence, negligent discharge of a firearm and firearm possession as a felon.

Monday’s incident began after police tried to arrest Perez on that warrant. He took off on a high-speed chase that ultimately ended with the barricade situation. Police said he pointed his rifle at pursuers during the chase and new charges are expected.
