3-day standoff captured by San Antonio TikTok user


Someone on TikTok documented the standoff on the Far Northside that ended this past weekend. It shows some rather odd antics from the police as they tried to communicate with the suspect.

Videos posted to TikTok have gone viral this week showing San Antonio police efforts, or lack thereof, during a three-day standoff at Stone Oak-area apartments that ended on Saturday, August 6. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said last Friday, August 5, that officers were waiting out Sone Quintero Rojas, and it appears in some of these TikTok videos that is exactly what they did. 

The videos, posted on an account called facelessunited, appears to be a resident at the 1207 Agora Palms Drive, at one point responding to a comment from someone who said they live there with “Hello neighbor.” The San Antonio Police Department presented the “active situation” as dangerous, telling people on Thursday, August 4, to avoid the area. Rojas held a woman hostage before releasing her. 

The videos posted to the TikTok account don’t appear to show much urgency from San Antonio SWAT and police. The video that popped off with 2.1 million views shows officers trying to throw what appears to be a hostage negotiator phone to Rojas’ second-floor balcony. Officers trying and failing at least four times paired with… whatever you call this.

The second video with 1.1 million views shows two officers leaning against a truck either scrolling through or talking on their phones. It also shows officers carrying Little Caesars pizza into what appears to be an adjacent apartment. The pizza boxes are then seen stacked in a trash bag.

Someone in the comments typed, “Must be Uvalde.”

There is also a quick shot of the portable toilet that the officers were apparently using with the words “Squat Team” printed on the side and a Minion in a police hat smiling and waving.

Look I know this is a portable toilet. But there is a lot going on here and I demand an explanation.

The last two videos show a man believed to be Rojas coming out of the apartment and on to the balcony to grab the negotiator phone using an office chair as cover.
