A kidnapping suspect was in custody Friday after leading officers on a vehicle chase through the San Fernando Valley, then fleeing on foot and climbing onto the roof of a home in Sylmar, where he remained in a standoff with authorities for hours, authorities said.
Few details were available about the kidnapping, but authorities said it was involved with a domestic violence situation.
The suspect surrendered about 1:10 a.m. Friday and came down from the roof of the home, located in the area of Oro Grande Street and Brussels Avenue, said Sgt. James Bender of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mission Division.
No force was used by police, who had the man surrounded, Bender said, but he was involved in a crash prior to the standoff and it wasn’t immediately clear if he was injured.
The kidnapping was reported about 1 p.m. Thursday. Hours later, police spotted the suspect and began chasing him.
