A man accused of attempted murder in Los Angeles was arrested after trying to board a bus in Lamont.

Deputies were dispatched to the Weedpatch Market at 8100 Buena Vista Blvd., in Lamont at about 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday regarding a warrant suspect who was seen boarding a regional transit bus by a Bakersfield Police Department detective.

Lamont is located 9 miles southeast of Bakersfield.

The man, 21-year-old Luis Secaida, was wanted by the Los Angeles Police Department on charges of attempted murder.

Deputies arrived and stopped the bus in the parking lot of the market.

The bus was occupied by a driver and three passengers.

Deputies ordered the occupants to exit the bus but only the driver and one passenger complied.

A female and male passenger refused to exit the bus, deputies said.

The driver positively identified the male passenger remaining on the bus as Secaida.

A 25-minute standoff ensued as Secaida and the female refused orders to exit the bus. After police negotiated with Secaida and female, they eventually exited the bus without incident. Secaida was arrested for his outstanding warrant and the female was detained.
