BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck man faces a terrorizing charge after police say he threatened a woman and held police at bay.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that bond was set Friday at $14,000 for 50-year-old Robert Hoskins.

Bismarck police say officers were called to a home early Friday for a reported dispute between Hoskins and a 50-year-woman. Police say Hoskins was armed with a knife or pizza cutter and threatened to hurt the woman and officers.

The woman was not hurt, and Hoskins was taken into custody about four hours later.

Hoskins asked for lower bond, saying he'd been drinking at the time. He could face two years in prison if convicted of terrorizing.
