At approximately 2:32 am on Saturday, November 14, 2020, Corpus Christi Police Department Officers were dispatched to the 5300 block of Bonham Street for a disturbance in progress, involving a weapon. 

When officers arrived, they attempted to speak to both parties.

The offender retreated into the home and would not communicate further with officers who were attempting to check on his welfare.  The female involved in the disturbance was able to exit the home safely.
