A Waukesha neighborhood was evacuated early Friday, July 7, as police negotiated with a domestic disturbance suspect who eventually fled from a home on Caroline Street.
Several people in the home were able to get out safely. The suspect, identified by police as Nasar A. Gregory, 24, turned himself in to police Sunday, two days after the incident.
Officers were called to the scene for a domestic disturbance prior to 6:30 a.m. As they arrived, several people – a 37-year-old woman and children ages 10, 12 and 17 – were seen fleeing from a window at the home.
Area residents were evacuated to ensure their safety. Police tried to negotiate with Gregory inside the Caroline Street home, but they subsequently learned he had fled while police were aiding the woman and children who had climbed out of the house.
According to police, Gregory boarded a city bus and then transferred to another bus on Friday. Police and officials with Waukesha Metro Transit were unable to determine where Gregory debarked the second time.
A temporary felony warrant was issued for Gregory for domestic battery, strangulation, child abuse and intimidation of a victim. He had not been charged as of Monday.
While Gregory was still at large, the Waukesha Police Department received tips from the public and worked in cooperation with the Milwaukee Police Department and U.S. Marshall’s Office.
Furthermore, a private investigator, identified as Daniel Storm, was "a vital asset to law enforcement" as he negotiated, coordinated and facilitate the safe surrender of Gregory, police said this week.
During the Friday incident, Main Street was closed from Pleasant to Hartwell streets. Caroline Street was completely closed. The victims in this incident were provided with resources that included the Women’s Center to advocate for their needs, according to police.
