LINCOLN, Del. - Police have charged a Georgetown man, after they say he barricaded himself and five others in a Lincoln home on Monday.

Delaware State Police say it all started around 10:20 PM, when they got a call about a man assaulting his ex-wife in a Railroad Avenue home, and refusing to allow her and her children to leave. At one point, one of the children, a 13-year-old tried to call 911, but was forced to drop the phone when her step-father grabbed her by her hair.

Just after 6:05 AM, DSP says their Special Operations Response Team made entry into the house, and took 43-year-old Juan Sanchez, into custody without incident. Sanchez had self inflicted wounds to his wrists and was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital for evaluation, according to authorities.

After Sanchez was released on Tuesday, Police say he was charged with five counts of 1st degree kidnapping, five counts of criminal contempt of a domestic violence protective order, four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, malicious interference with emergency communications, and offensive touching. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $524,500 bond.

The 33-year-old woman was treated at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries sustained in the physical altercation, and released. Her four children, ages 4 months to 13-years-old were uninjured in this incident.
