WATERLOO (KWWL)-- A woman is held at gunpoint after a man forced his way into her home Wednesday morning.

Waterloo Police were called to a home in the 1900 block of Commercial Street just before 2:30 a.m. after another man called authorities to say he was being threatened with a gun.

When police arrived, they surrounded the home, and took 41 year old Craig Knebel of rural Jesup into custody. Knebel faces charges for burglary, false imprisonment and assault while displaying a weapon.

Police later found the gun outside the home, buried in the snow. No one was injured.
