RED CLOUD, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Nebraska man accused of holding a woman against her will in a Red Cloud home.

Nebraska State Patrol troopers and Webster County Sheriff deputies responded around 2 a.m. Thursday to a Red Cloud residence. Thirty-year-old Charles Folkman was arrested shortly before 5 a.m. after holding officers at bay for nearly three hours.

Authorities say a State Patrol crisis negotiator was able to arrange the release of an uninvolved 26-year-old man just before 3 a.m. The 46-year-old woman was released 15 minutes later and treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital.

Folkman is charged with false imprisonment, terroristic threats and second-degree assault. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted for comment about the charges.

The case remains under investigation.
