Travis Smith, 26, wanted for questioning in a Stevenson Ranch case involving grand theft, attempted robbery and making criminal threats, locked himself in his room after deputies tried to talk to him, sheriff’s Lt. Mike Dunkle said. “We attempted to make contract, we wanted to arrest him,” Dunkle said. “He said he was not going to surrender.” Guest John Cohen, 42, of Dallas said deputies used a shield to guard evacuees as they headed from the third floor. [email protected] (661) 257-5255 STEVENSON RANCH – Guests at a Stevenson Ranch hotel were evacuated this afternoon because a man is holed up in his hotel room with a gun. Evacuees said deputies came shortly before 4 p.m. to their third-floor rooms at the Comfort Suites on Pico Canyon Road and guided them to safety. “The children were frightened when they saw the policemen with guns and were told to get back in their rooms,” said Sandy Cohen, 66, of Tamarack, Fla., in town with 25 family members for a Saturday Bar Mitzvah. Meanwhile, the Highway Patrol has closed The Old Road and Pico Canyon Road near the hotel.
