A Bryan man is in jail after a late night stand-off with Brazos County Sheriff's Officers.
55-year-old Alan Hejtmancik barricaded himself inside his home on Briar Oaks Drive in Bryan after pulling a knife of officers.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says Hektmancik surrendered to authorities and was arrested around 10:40pm Tuesday, when negotiators used special technology to breach the back door of the house and make contact with the man.
Kirk says that officers with the Crisis Intervention Team were responding to a concern of welfare call when they saw Hejtmancik walking along E. 29th St. in Bryan pushing a bicycle. When the officers approached the suspect in his car, he allegedly pulled out a folding pocket knife and threatened the officers.
Hejtmancik then took off on the bicycle and barricaded himself inside his home. Officials say that during the stand off the suspect was a threat only to himself as no one else was home.
Officials obtained a search warrant and a warrant for his arrest on charges of Aggravated Assault of a Peace Officer.
Sheriff Kirk says there will be an ongoing investigation conducted. The Sheriff's department was assisted by members of the Bryan PD, College Station PD, Bryan Fire Department, and the Constable Pct. 1.
Hejtmancik was transported to St. Joseph Health System in Bryan for a medical evaluation, then transported to the Brazos County Jail. He is currently charged with Aggrevated Assault of a Peace Officer and being held under $25,000 bond.
