ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A woman and her 3-year-old son are OK after SWAT teams pulled them from a hostage situation Friday morning.
SWAT teams with Albuquerque police raided the home on 57th street northwest around 8 a.m. Friday about two hours after receiving a call reporting a man holding his girlfriend against her will.
They entered the home in an emergency after losing communication with the victim.
SWAT crews used two stun grenades as part of their raid on the house and within a few seconds they had the suspect, 23-year-old Richard Salazar in custody.
Police say the original call from the alleged hostage's father in Colorado.
He told police that his daughter's boyfriend would not let her leave the house.
Police say Salazer had threatened to slit his girlfriend's throat Friday morning as well.
The woman and her young son were not hurt during the raid.
The couple apparently has a history of domestic dispute issues according to APD.
An outstanding warrant out of Colorado warned officers to use caution with Salazar and that he had violent tendencies.
Salazar is currently facing a string of charges.
