An Omaha parolee has been arrested again.

A year after Frederick Patterson was granted parole, investigators knocked down his door and arrested him, Fact Finders has learned.

He barricaded himself inside a home last week at 56th & Sprague.

He was wanted on a felony warrant for robbery out of Sarpy county.

Patterson has a history of run-ins with police.

He was sentenced to 18 to 38 years in 2002.

In 2001, he held police off for 4-hours as he threatened to jump off the bridge at 24th and Martha.

On its Facebook page, the Omaha Police Officers Association criticized the Nebraska Parole Board for the early release of Frederick Patterson. "We think that scale should always tip towards the safety of the public."
