TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department has a man in custody after what started as a domestic violence situation Thursday night, May 3. 

According to TPD the incident started around 5:50 p.m., when several calls were made to police about a man assaulting a woman, claiming the man had an ax and was waving it around. 

The man then threatened a different woman and her child as he was walking by a park.  He then entered an apartment near Geronimo and Navajo, as several people came out.  

All were detained by police and the man remained inside the apartment, according to police.  The second woman and her child that were threatened are ok, though the first woman has not been located. 

Several hours later SWAT entered the apartment and took the man into custody, according to TPD.
