Law enforcement officials on the scene of a three-day-long standoff along Arden Way were successfully able to deliver a package to a 26-year-old suspect holding a one-year-old child hostage.
The package was delivered via a police robot shortly after 1pm. FOX40 reporter Chris Biele said it was unclear what was in a plastic bag dangling from the arm of the police robot, but it appeared to contain at least one water bottle.
Armed robbery and attempted murder suspect Anthony Alvarez, 26, has been holed up inside unit 29 of the Arden Towne Apartments since Wednesday afternoon. Inside the unit is one-year-old Michael Pittman, Jr., the son of Alvarez's cousin, who is being held hostage.
Alvarez is wanted in connection with at least three armed robberies and the attempted murder of a police officer in Concord. San Francisco Police also want to question Alvarez in connection with a homicide that occurred there earlier this year.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
