SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a Scottsdale man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in the stabbing of his wife.

Scottsdale police say 55-year-old Robert Trudeau also is facing charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping and resisting arrest.

Police say Trudeau was at home around 6 a.m. Thursday when he allegedly began attacking his wife, stabbing her multiple times.

The woman was able to break free and run from the home with her teenage son.

She was taken to a hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Her name hasn’t been released.

Police say Trudeau remained in the home as responding officers arrived and a barricade situation ensued for several hours.

He later surrendered to police and was taken into custody.

It was unclear if Trudeau has a lawyer yet.
