A Saline County man was taken into custody after authorities responded to a domestic dispute northwest of Salina on Wednesday evening.
According to Sheriff Roger Soldan, deputies arrested 66-year-old Robert Brown after an argument inside a home in the 4700 block of Pleasant Hill Road turned violent.
Soldan says a female acquaintance and Robert Brown were arguing while the woman was on the phone with a friend. She put the phone down as the argument continued. At one point deputies allege that Brown held the woman down and also threatened to shoot her by pointing a hand gun at her.
The person on the other end of the phone could hear the struggle and called 911 around 8:30pm.
Brown is now facing charges that could include domestic battery, criminal restraint, aggravated assault and criminal threat.
The woman was not injured.
