San Pablo police are hailing a team of officers who came to the aid of a teenager suffering from a mental health crisis Wednesday night.

Police responded to the home after the teenager had armed himself with a knife and barricaded himself inside a room, police said. Officer Cameron Banayat, who works with the SPD’s Juvenile Education Welfare Liaison team, responded as he had previously been working with the teen and his family to get him assistance for his condition. Sgt. Aaron Blaisdell led a team that safely evacuated the family and set up a perimeter while Officer Banayat established communication to de-escalate the situation, police said.

The teen dropped his knife following 20 minutes of negotiation, agreed to come out and meet with the officer. He was subsequently sent to a hospital for treatment, police said.

“Officer Banayat will be following up with the family to provide much needed support and resources,” police said.

SPD commended the commitment of the officers to “slow things down and de-escalate a potentially violent encounter.” The collaborative actions of Banayat, Blaisdell, as well as Officers Amar Kullar, Monica Louis, Sandra Trevino, Javier Rios, and Tyler Nelson, resulted in an incident where no one was injured and help was provided for a family in need.

“The San Pablo Police Department’s JEWL Program (Juvenile Education Welfare Liaison), has continued through the past year during the pandemic,” according to SPD. “This important resource allows officers to continue to deliver the G.R.E.A.T. Program to students and families to keep our youth away from dangerous life choices, such as gangs and drugs.”


  1. Hello friends, an awesome testimony about a Great spell caster called Dr. Akereco I love to share. My name is Paul Cooper from South Africa. Getting my wife back is what I least expected and could never imagine. I and my wife have been married for 10 years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden she changed completely and turned away from me and I never knew what was going on, I tried to ask her but she refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on she sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused, and I did all my possible best to get her back but it wasn’t easy, I thought all hope was lost, and during my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had a similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr. Akereco who helped him get back his wife also. I never believed in spell casting in my entire life or magic because I never thought it would work but I tried to give Dr. Akereco a chance and to my greatest surprise, He cast a spell to bring my wife back, today we are back together in a lovely home with 2 beautiful kids. We are happy together again and I am using this opportunity to tell anyone going through a similar situation
