BREAKING NEWS: Businessman Attacked, Wife and Daughter Held Hostage in Lengthy Standoff
A local businessman is currently recovering in the hospital, with his condition reported as stable, after being assaulted by one of his employees.
The harrowing incident unfolded late Sunday night and extended well into the early hours of Monday morning.
During this ordeal, the businessman’s wife and daughter were held at knifepoint while law enforcement officers engaged in painstaking negotiations with the assailant.
According to information received by ANR, the businessman was confronted at his residence in Law Pasture by an employee hailing from Bendals.
A conversation between the two individuals apparently escalated into a physical altercation, resulting in the employer being stabbed.
He was promptly transported to the hospital, but the crisis was far from resolved.
The assailant then took the businessman’s wife and daughter hostage, prompting an extensive effort by the police to secure their release.
After a protracted negotiation, the attacker relented, first releasing the daughter and then her mother, before ultimately surrendering to law enforcement authorities.
Thankfully, neither of the two women sustained any injuries during this frightening episode.
The assailant is currently under interrogation and may also undergo a psychiatric evaluation in the coming days.
