Man Arrested After Holding Girlfriend Hostage, Police At Bay For Hours

DETROIT (WWJ) – A Huron Township man who held his girlfriend hostage for several hours following a domestic dispute has been taken into custody.

The unidentified man was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after releasing the woman from his home in the Country Meadows Mobile Home Park on Will Carleton Road, along the Wayne-Monroe county border.

Police initially responded to the home around 4 p.m. Monday and found the man barricaded inside the home with the woman. The man reportedly made threats, claiming he would harm his girlfriend if police tried to move in and rescue her.
