GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was arrested after threatening his girlfriend with a sword and later refusing to surrender to police.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. Friday at a home in the 400 block of Elliot Avenue in Grand Haven.
The victim fled the home with two children, one of whom the couple had together.
When police arrived, the suspect initially refused to exit the home and surrender.
A perimeter was set-up around the home and the suspect eventually came out and was taken into custody after about 30 minutes of contact with police over the phone.
The suspect is being held at the Ottawa County Jail on felony assault charges and is expected to be arraigned Friday.
