A Bunnell man was arrested after he allegedly threatened two people with a shotgun at his home on Railroad Street in Bunnell.

Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies and Bunnell Police Department officers arrested Joseph Cavallaro, 28, on March 31 after a 30-minute standoff. Cavallaro has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to Cavallaro's arrest report. 

The two victims told law enforcement officers that they had arrived at Cavallaro's RV trailer home in the 400 block of Railroad Street to pick up one of the victim's possessions inside the trailer. Cavallaro was waiting for them outside, one victim said, and when she told him what the two were there for, he racked his shotgun and told them to "Go for it," the report said.

When law enforcement arrived on the scene, Cavallaro had barricaded himself inside the trailer. After 30 minutes and multiple attempts to get Cavallaro to leave the trailer, the man walked out of the RV with his hands over his head.
