Arrest Follows Hours-Long Downtown Standoff

A lengthy standoff in downtown Redding that prompted the closure of Market Street finally ended with an arrest. 32-year-old Jakeima Rohrbach, who was wanted on felony warrants, was getting into his car in the Market Street Manor parking lot when police arrived at 5:45 to arrest him, but he refused to get out of his car and officers, believing he was armed, backed off and called in the SWAT team. After five hours of negotiations, Rohrbach finally surrendered without incident. He’s being held without bail.
