Rohnert Park police say they had to Taser a man three times on Saturday before he dropped a knife and ceased an alleged attack on officers. Police responded to a home in the 7500 block of Adrian Drive at about 5:30 p.m. after receiving calls from the family of a man who was acting erratically and possibly under the influence of drugs, according to Rohnert Park police.

The suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Anthony Rodriguez, had apparently locked his mother in a bathroom on Friday, police said. When officers confronted Rodriguez in the kitchen of the home, he began throwing furniture, police said. During a violent struggle, police said Rodriguez took out a knife and armed himself.

Two officers Tasered Rodriguez a total of three times before he dropped a knife and was taken into custody, police said. He received treatment for minor injuries and was subsequently booked into Sonoma County jail for assaulting officers with a deadly weapon, resisting arrest with a threat of violence and resisting arrest.
