YPD arrests man for threat to cut off daughter’s head


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – An elderly Youngstown man is in the Mahoning County Jail after threatening to cut off his daughter’s head with a sword.

Youngstown Police arrested Charles Duecaster, 74, Sunday on a charge of domestic violence after his daughter, Allison Whitaker, 43, said he grabbed a sword and threatened her with it during an argument.

Whittaker said she and her dad got into an argument over their television, which soon escalated into Duecaster grabbing a “long sword,” and threatening to cut her head off, according to a police report.

Whittaker then called police and said that Duecaster fled the scene with the sword, the police report states.
