Wichita Falls Police closed off part of a Wichita Falls neighborhood Sunday morning during a SWAT situation.

According to Wichita Falls Police public information officer Sgt. Charlie Eipper:

Officers responded to the 3100 block of Lela Lane Sunday morning to investigate a disturbance.

They found a woman in a backyard screaming. She was injured from an assault. She was transported to the hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. She told police her ex-boyfriend broke into her house, assaulted her and pointed a firearm at her before barricading himself in the house.

A perimeter was set and WFPD SWAT was called to the scene. Negotiators were able to communicate with the suspect and they attempted to talk him into coming outside. Communications failed and gas was deployed. SWAT found the man hiding in a closet. Police searched the house but did not find a firearm.

Bobby Cisneros,43, was arrested and charged with Burglary of a Habituation.

According to a previous Times Record News report, Cisneros was arrested in December 2020, after leading police on a brief vehicle pursuit.
