Mount Pleasant police say a man is in custody Sunday night after he held at least three people hostage and threatened to kill everyone inside a home on Warwick Way.

Officers were called at 4:17 p.m. Sunday to a home in the 1400 block of Warwick Way for a report of a man “destroying an apartment” and threatening to shoot and kill everyone inside.

Eventually, the man let two of the three hostages go, but kept a woman inside and would not allow her to leave, a written statement from MPPD Sgt. David Stroupe.

Officers arrived and talked the man into letting the woman go, and the man later surrendered peacefully. He was booked into the Racine County Jail on charges of criminal damage to property, false imprisonment, and disorderly conduct with armed, domestic abuse assessment.
