Man in jail after threatening kids

Posted: Updated:

Guam - 30-year-old Gregory Taisipic remains behind bars after barricading himself in his Yona home and threatening to hurt three minors. GPD's crisis negotiators and SWAT were called to the residence on Sunday afternoon after Taisipic allegedly got into an argument with a woman known to him and locked himself and the children in the home by nailing the door shut. 

Negotiators spent 40 minutes trying to get Taisipic to surrender but because of concerns for the safety of the children, SWAT entered the home and took him into custody.  Taisipic remains behind bars on charges of family violence, terrorizing, felonious restraint and three counts of child abuse. He is scheduled to be magistrated on Tuesday.

Taisipic was arrested in July accused of stealing cases of cigarettes from an Ambros delivery van and being found in possession of an Ice pipe.
