SAN JOSE -- A would-be burglar who was arrested after he barricaded himself inside a home Monday is also being held on three sex counts involving children, police said.

Victor Manzanares is facing two counts of annoying or molesting a child and one count of committing lewd or lascivious acts with a minor, police revealed Tuesday.

Manzanares also faces charges of burglary and resisting arrest, stemming from the Monday standoff, police added. Police did not say where the sex counts stemmed from, only that they came to light during investigators' interrogation of Manzanares.

Manzanares engaged in a standoff with police for roughly 90 minutes Monday after he allegedly broke into a home near Senter Road and Balfour Drive, according to police.

A woman living at the home called police to report someone was forcing his way inside. While she escaped, the intruder -- later identified as Manzanares -- refused to come outside, police said.

As a precaution, police evacuated homes in the immediate area, about a block west of the Los Lagos Golf Course. No injuries were reported.

Around 1 p.m., police announced Manzanares surrendered and was arrested. While the man was inside, he apparently tried to light a cigarette and left the gas on, so the San Jose Fire Department was summoned to make sure the home was safe.

His listed name does not appear on the Megan's Law state sex offender registry.
