FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- A California couple whose son was found safe a few hours after being kidnapped is now alleging they were mistreated by police.
Video taken by officers' body cameras appears to show the boy's mother screaming at police and refusing to allow them to search their house for the child.
According to KTXL, the 8-year-old Brock Guzman's parents said he was asleep in the family's car when it was stolen from their driveway early Monday.
Authorities issued an AMBER Alert which was canceled about three hours later when someone from the community spotted the car several blocks from the home with the boy inside.
Paul Guzman said police mistreated his wife Suzanne Guzman after she initially refused to allow officers inside the home over fears one of their dogs would bite.
“One will bite if I’m not present when people are in there,” Paul Guzman explained to KTXL. “So she asked them not to enter the house, she didn’t give them permission to go in the house until I got back because I was out looking for my son.”
Guzman claimed when he returned, an officer was next door “antagonizing” the dogs.
“So when my wife walked over there and asked him not to antagonize the dogs, and that her husband was here, and put her hand on the screen door to make sure the screen door was secure because the dogs will jump up on it and it will open, they manhandled her,” Guzman told the station.
Newly released cellphone and police body camera video showed the frantic mother as she apparently would not to let them inside the home. At one point, the video appeared to show the woman being pushed to the ground and placed in handcuffs.

“No, I am not resisting,” the woman screamed. “What am I doing? What am I doing.”
“Stop resisting,” an officer could be heard telling her. “Stop resisting, please.”
Police said they wanted to go inside the home to make sure the boy was not hiding somewhere.
According to Fairfield police, officers detained Suzanne in handcuffs when they noticed a "reddish substance smeared in the carpet" that resembled blood.
Paul was later detained after officers claimed he was interfering.
“It was the actions of the family during this investigation that caused us concern and ultimately led to their arrest,” police said in the news release. “Both Suzanne and Paul Guzman were later released without any charges being filed.”
The Guzmans told KTXL that they have already met with an attorney and are planning to file a complaint against the Fairfield Police Department and the city.
No arrests have been made in Brock’s kidnapping which remains under investigation.
