Police in Hastings say a man barricaded himself and his wife inside their Marion Avenue home for several hours.
Antonio Velez, 41, held his wife hostage and threatened her life following a domestic dispute Sunday night, according to police. A SWAT team was called to the scene.
John Brink, a neighbor of the Velez family, says that police have been called to the Velez home a few times.
