Police suspect man of assaulting tow truck driver, violating no-contact order twice this week

UPDATED: Fri., Dec. 11, 2020

Police arrested a man Thursday whom they suspect of violating a no-contact order at the same residence twice this week.

Just after 9:15 a.m. Thursday, Spokane police arrived at a residence in the 3700 block of West Bismark Avenue after the report of a violation of a domestic violence no-contact order.

Bail agents arrived at the house looking for Andrew Perry, who had been arrested from the same residence Monday after police suspect he assaulted a tow truck driver and damaged the tow truck, a news release said.

Perry had also been arrested on suspicion of violating a domestic violence no-contact order at the same residence. Someone bailed Perry out of jail through a bail bonds company, the release said.

Bail agents said they saw a struggle in the house, the release said.

Once they arrived, police said they saw him in the home. According to the release, Perry claimed to have a gun and refused to leave, so the Spokane Police Department SWAT team responded. Shortly after the SWAT officers and equipment arrived, Perry left the residence and police took him into custody, according to the release.

Perry was booked into the Spokane County Jail on suspicion of residential burglary and multiple violations of the no-contact order, the release said.

The Spokane Police Department, in the release, encouraged anyone involved in a domestic violence incident to call 911. People can also visit the Spokane Regional Domestic Violence Coalition Resource Page online.
