Waukesha Police are searching for 24-year-old Nasar Gregory. Gregory is wanted in connection with a domestic assault and standoff that started just after 1:00 AM Friday morning in Waukesha at a home on Caroline Street near East Main Street.

According to the Waukesha police, a 37-year-old woman, her mother and her three children escaped from a window in the home just as police arrived. The woman told police she is Gregory's girlfriend and they have been living together for at least a year.

Investigators believe while officers were assuring the victims safety, the suspect managed to flee the residence. It was later determined that Gregory had escaped on a Waukesha Metro Transit bus and later transferred to the gold line bus at Brookfield Square which goes to Milwaukee. It is unknown where Gregory got off, but the bus route ends at UW-M. 

Milwaukee Police are aware of the situation, but at this time are not assisting in the search.

CBS 58 spoke to the woman who escaped the home who said she believes he is attempting to get a gun and is scared he will return. The woman had bruises on her jaw and legs and said Gregory bit her on the arm. The children were not injured.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim said Gregory got mad when she went to sleep in a different room and spit in her face three times and poured water on her head. She said the suspect punched her in the chin and strangled her.

When the victim tried to leave with her children Gregory did not want them to leave and said he would kill her and the children. He pushed the family back into the house causing some of them to fall and get hurt. Eventually the victim was able to get herself and her children into a lower level bedroom where they escaped out of the window.

People in nearby homes were evacuated to ensure their safety.

During the incident, Gregory made the statement that he was not going to go back to jail.

Gregory has already been charged with six counts of domestic abuse including abuse of child, felony intimidation of a victim and strangulation and suffocation.
