An Albuquerque man was arrested by SWAT members Friday, after police say he was holding his girlfriend and her son hostage.

Court documents said Richard Salazar threatened to cut the woman’s throat while in their home on 57th Street.

The woman managed to lock herself and her son in the bathroom.

Salazar is charged with aggravated assault and child abuse.
