BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Police say they arrested a man after he forced entry into a woman’s home and threatened her with a gun in western Idaho.
KTVB-TV reports police were called to the Meridian home Sunday afternoon, but the Nampa man had fled before officers arrived.
The woman had a no-contact order against the man.
Police say investigators tracked the man to a desert area south of Kuna, leading to a nearly four-hour standoff.
