Ha kidnapped his children at home threatening to kill them with a butcher knife. Moments of fear last night in Ardea, in the province of Rome, where the carabinieri arrested a 44-year-old Roman, already under house arrest.
At around 10 pm the man threw his partner out of the house threatening to kill his 2-month-old daughter and one-year-old son. The woman, in a panic, called the police and the carabinieri of Anzio and the station of Marina di Tor San Lorenzo intervened on the spot. Once the soldiers arrived, from the windows of the house they saw the man holding his daughter and a butcher’s knife in his hand.
A long negotiation began, conducted personally by the commander of the Anzio company while the man, who was also under the influence of alcohol, threw knives at the Arma soldiers. In the end, the 44-year-old, around 11.30 pm surrendered to the military who arrested him on charges of kidnapping, aggravated threats and resistance to a public official. The children are fine: visited by 118 staff, they were then returned to their mother.
