JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say Jamestown police subdued a man with bean bag rounds after he brandished a machete while approaching officers.

The incident happened after police responded Thursday night to numerous reports of a disturbance between a man and a woman. Jamestown Police Sgt. Ryan Goff tells KQDJ radio that the suspect carried the machete “in a hostile manner” and did not comply with police commands.

A 26-year-old Jamestown man was arrested on suspicion of numerous charges, including felony terrorizing, simple assault and disorderly conduct. He has not been formally charged.

Goff says the incident remains under investigation.
