A 34-year-old man was arrested after barricading himself inside a home near Missouri and 61st Avenue on Thursday. His wife and their four children were held against their will inside, according to police.

Marcus Grampton's wife has an order of protection against him, but according to a police report, he violated the order and showed up at her home. Their children, ages 5 to 11, were inside.

A police report revealed that Grampton called his wife's boyfriend from her home and told him to come over.

When he arrived, Grampton allegedly started a fist fight with him in the garage and showed a handgun.

Grampton's wife and children told police they were told by Grampton to not go anywhere or let police inside.

Both his wife and their 11-year-old son told officers they were afraid of Grampton, according to police report.

Grampton then allegedly barricaded himself inside a kitchen cabinet and refused police orders to come out.

After a three hour stand off, the SWAT Team was sent in and Grampton was arrested.

A police report states that during an interview, Grampton told them he had been invited over and denied not allowing anyone to leave the house. He claims he fell asleep in the house after fighting with the boyfriend and didn't wake up until he hard a robot from the SWAT Team.

Grampton was booked and faces charges of failure to comply with a court order, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, five counts of unlawful imprisonment and aggravated assault/violating a protection order.
