Colorado Springs Man Set for Trial for Burglary, Fighting with Longmont Officers
A Colorado Springs man accused of breaking into a Longmont home and then later fighting with police officers while trying to escape the holding cell is set for two trials in April.
Ryan Lockwood is set for trial beginning April 22 on charges of first-degree burglary, felony menacing, two counts of second-degree assault on a peace officer, obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest, attempting to disarm a peace officer and trespassing.
According to an affidavit, Longmont police on May 23 found Lockwood fleeing a home in the 1300 block of Parker Drive. The resident told police she woke up to Lockwood standing in her hallway with a handgun in his waistband. While she and her daughters hid in the basement, her husband confronted Lockwood until he ran out of the house.
When police arrested Lockwood, they found he had a loaded .380-caliber handgun, as well as a bag of cheese and packs of Gogurt yogurt, according to the affidavit. Lockwood told police he thought the house was empty and used a garage door opener he found in an unlocked vehicle to get inside because he was hungry.
While in a holding cell, Lockwood the reportedly got into a fight with two officers before they used a stun gun on him.
Lockwood also is set for a separate trial for felony menacing on April 8 for a separate incident in which he reportedly asked a man for a ride while displaying a handgun in his waistband on May 22 in the 900 block of Main Street.
