SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls man suspected of threatening a resident with a machete and fleeing the scene of a rollover crash is in custody following a manhunt by police.

Authorities say the 28-year-old man was arrested on aggravated assault, tampering with a motor vehicle and traffic-related charges Thursday in the backyard of a home in the 800 block of South Lowell Avenue.

Police say the man threatened a homeowner with a machete around 6 a.m. The homeowner fired a handgun toward the ground to scare away the man.

Police say the suspect ran away and later crashed a car near East 18th Street and South Wagner Avenue. A witness says the man had a handgun as he fled.

Officers searched for the man for several hours before arresting him around noon.
