EARLY, Iowa (AP) - A western Iowa man has been accused of sexually assaulting his ex-wife and threatening to shoot her.

The Sac County Sheriff’s Office says the man, of Early, was arrested Wednesday morning. His ex-wife reported from a local convenience store and said her two children were in a house with her ex-husband. She said he was armed with a shotgun.

Authorities surrounded the home and instructed the man to come outside. He was taken into custody without incident. An 8-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy inside were not hurt.

The woman told authorities her ex-husband sexually assaulted her on Tuesday.

The man faces third-degree sexual assault and other charges. The Associated Press is not naming him to protect the woman’s identity. The AP generally does not identify victims of sexual assault.
