WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A man wanted on a parole violation held his partner and child at knifepoint for more than an hour when deputies came to collect him, according to the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office.

Brent Boggess, 36, of Waterloo was arrested at his home at 220 Madison Street after deputies say he held his partner and child as hostages for more than an hour.

Waterloo Police and Black Hawk County deputies blocked off an area around Madison Street on Thursday afternoon for about an hour before the man surrendered.

According to the sheriff's office, the suspect was wanted for a parole violation. His original charges were assault and failure to appear in court.

When deputies came to pick him up at around 2 p.m., the suspect barricaded himself inside his home with his "significant other" and child, holding them both hostage at knifepoint, according to deputies.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff SWAT Team and a crisis negotiator convinced Boggess to peacefully surrender at 3:23 p.m., assisted by the Waterloo Police Department, according to the sheriff's office.

Madison Street is now clear, according to the sheriff's office, and Boggess is in the Black Hawk County Jail. No new charges have yet been filed.
