CIBOLO, TEXAS, April 2, 2015¦On April 1, 2015, around 11:00pm Cibolo Police were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of Willow Bluff in regards to an assault involving domestic violence.
Upon arrival, officers were told by a female victim that her husband had physically assaulted by striking her in the head with a handgun and pointing the weapon at her.
It was determined that as officers had arrived on scene, the suspect identified as 48 year old, Paul Anthony Dileo had ran upstairs armed with the weapon and barricaded himself in a bedroom.
Officers were able to evacuate the victim and children from the home and attempted to make contact with Dileo. Dileo refused to respond to officers and remained upstairs where officers were informed he had access to other weapons.
After unsuccessful attempts to make contact with Dileo, the Guadalupe County SWAT Team, which consists of representatives from Cibolo and Seguin Police Departments as well as the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Department, was activated and responded to the scene.
Approximately 3 hours later at approximately 2:00 a.m. Dileo surrender himself to the SWAT team and was taken into custody without further incident.
Dileo was booked into the Guadalupe County Jail on charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon where he is awaiting arraignment.
A “Reverse 911” Call was initiated during the incident by the on scene commander to notify residents in the immediate area of the police activity and asking them to remain indoors for their safety. The reverse 911 system works by notifying residents who have land lines and cell phones which are registered with the 911 system within a defined geographic area, which in the case was .08 miles of the incident.
A subsequent reverse 911 call was made informing residents the situation was resolved. Reverse 911 is not intended to notify everyone of the incident or to serve as a media notification for residents, but to inform residents who may be in immediate danger should they innocently wander into the scene.
