A woman in Texas was arrested after she took a man hostage at gunpoint on Valentine’s Day-- and held him at his home for nearly two-weeks before he escaped.


The 59-year-old man had been bound and confined in the home, given only limited food and water and had been physically assaulted several times. 

The 43-year-old woman used her firearm to “terrorize and control” the man. Cops said she discharged her weapon on several different occasions over the two-weeks she held him captive.

The man was able to escape and call 911.  She was arrested and the man was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for the injuries he suffered while he was being held captive.
