Stow man accused of holding estranged wife at gunpoint

STOW, OH (WOIO) - A Stow man arrested after holding his estranged wife at gunpoint.

The 34-year-old victim called police shortly after 6:30AM Thursday morning and said she was being held against her will in her home. She was able to make the call and remained in the residence to ensure her children's safety.

Officers arrived and the husband, 36-year-old Patrick P. Dobrzanski, followed their commands and surrendered without incident.

It was later learned he had several weapons in the residence and had held her against her will almost nine hours.

The two children sleeping inside the residence during that time were unharmed and seemingly unaware of the events unfolding in their home.

Dobrzanski was charged with Kidnapping and Domestic Violence.
