Martinez, Calif. – A Lafayette man faces a 12-count felony complaint related to an armed home invasion incident wherein the victims were held hostage for hours.
Kenneth David Mcisaac, 31, was arraigned today (Thursday, Oct. 6) at 1:30 pm in Martinez for kidnapping, false imprisonment by violence, second-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, criminal threats, and child abuse. He entered a plea of not guilty in front of Judge Rebecca Hardie.
The charges stem from when Mcisaac pulled a gun on a mother and her daughter on September 24th around three o’clock in the afternoon. The victims were walking back to their apartment complex in Lafayette when Mcisaac forced them into their residence at gunpoint and proceeded to hold the entire family of four hostage for over five hours.
At one point during the ordeal, an adult victim was able to break free and physically overpower Mcisaac. Police and emergency crews arrived after a 911 call was placed, and Mcisaac was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Three days later on September 27th, he was booked into the West County Detention Facility where he remains in custody. His next court date is November 30, 2022, at 8:30 am with Judge Mary Ann O’Malley.
