A 41-year-old man threatened his wife with a machete after an argument.

When police responded to a late-night 9-1-1 call they encountered a woman fleeing her husband out of an apartment, but the child was still inside.

The man barricaded himself in the apartment after she left, but police were able to gain entry and get the child out.

After that the man barricaded himself in the bedroom, and some time later the officers were able to get in and arrest the man for unlawful imprisonment and a host of other charges.
