A Horseshoe Bend man has been taken into custody after a call was placed to the Izard County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 7:34 a.m.
The caller identified himself as a brother of the female who claimed her husband had locked her out of the house.
Izard County deputies responded to an address on Nightingale in Horseshoe Bend.
The female stated she had been assaulted by her husband, locked out of the house and he was holding their three month old baby inside.
She told authorities he had threatened to do harm to the child if the police showed up.

After a short standoff and some negotiation, Aaron Sefers, age 24 came out of the house and gave up.

The child was unharmed.

Sefers is now facing charges for two counts of felony first-degree terroristic threatening, felony aggravated assault to a family or household member, 2nd degree endangering the welfare of a minor, and interference with emergency communication in the first degree. 

Aaron Seferes is being held in the Izard County Sheriff’s Office on no bond.
