Fairfield man faces kidnapping charges

        FAIRFIELD - A 29-year-old man was being held at the Butler County Jail, accused of holding his wife and their children against their will at gunpoint for several hours late Sunday.

        No one was reported hurt.

        Randy Savage faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated menacing and violating a recent domestic violence protection order, according to Butler County court records.

        He also was charged with intimidation of a victim in a criminal case. Other charges may be pending.

        He is to be arraigned at 9 p.m. today at Fairfield Municipal Court.

        Lt. Ken Colburn of the Fairfield Police Department said Mr. Savage held the woman and their three children against their will when she came to his home in the 800 block of Doris Jane Avenue about 8 p.m. Sunday to pick up their three children.

        The woman is divorcing him and took out a domestic violence protection order against him Feb. 27, according to Butler County court records.

        By 11 p.m., the man let the woman, whose name was not released, go with two of the children. She called police 2 hours later to alert them of the situation. It was not immediately clear why she waited to contact authorities.

        Mr. Savage refused to answer the phone or door when police attempted to contact him.

        The Hamilton Police Department's SWAT team entered the home about 6 a.m. Tuesday and arrested Mr. Savage and secured the child, a 4-year-old boy.
