Dubuque police: Man holds woman at gunpoint, woman arrested

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Police say a woman is in custody today after she was detained at gunpoint by a man.

Dubuque Police Lt. Scott Baxter says they were called to the 1500 block of Elm Street early Wednesday afternoon for a female being held at gunpoint.

While officers were on the way, they learned the man who was holding her at gunpoint was the one who called the police, Baxter said.

That man apparently told police he thought the woman was going to break into his house, and decided to detain her using his gun, Baxter said.

As police were investigating, they found drug paraphernalia on the woman and arrested and charged her with the same, according to Baxter.

No other arrests were made, but Baxter says the incident will be reviewed by the county attorney to determine if additional charges are warranted.
