Man With A Machete: SWAT Team Diffuses Armed Disturbance

August 31, 2013

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team was called out Saturday morning to diffuse an armed disturbance.

The SWAT team was dispatched to the 4900 block of Birch Avenue. The suspect, identified as 56-year old Tommy L. Allen, was wanted for aggravated battery against his roommate after he threw boiling water on him overnight, deputies said. He had returned to threaten him again Saturday morning with a machete.

The SWAT unit arrived shortly after 9 a.m., and by 9:30 a.m. Allen was taken into custody without incident. He was booked into the Escambia County Jail without bond.
