A kidnapping and stalking suspect was arrested Wednesday after he barricaded himself in his bedroom for hours in El Monte.
Detectives attempted to serve arrest warrants for Gregory Gilbert Gissart, 29, at 9:30 a.m. at 11040 Elliot Ave., according to El Monte Police Sgt. Richard Luna.
Gissart’s family members were uncooperative with detectives, and Gissart’s mother, Thelma Nidez, 50, was arrested for misdemeanor police obstruction, Luna said.
Officers saw Gissart on the second floor through a window, and another family member allowed police to enter the residence.
Detectives went to the second-floor bedroom where Gissart was seen, but he refused to exit the bedroom and barricaded himself inside.
The residence was surrounded by police, and the El Monte Special Weapons and Tactics Team responded. After several hours, Gissart surrendered and was taken into custody, Luna said.
Gissart sustained minor injuries and was treated by Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel. He was medically cleared at a hospital and booked at the El Monte Jail.
Gissart was arrested on suspicion of felony obstruction of police and for kidnapping and stalking warrants. He will be transferred to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Inmate Reception Center and will be held without bail because of the kidnapping warrant.
Nidez was booked and released on citation.
