WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren man accused of holding his wife and child hostage for two weeks entered a not guilty plea in court Thursday morning.
Harold Travis, 22, is being held without bond in the Trumbull County Jail on a felonious assault charge. He originally was charged with domestic violence, abduction and felonious assault, according to a police report.
Meanwhile, police were back at Travis’ home on Elm Road Thursday morning, where they served a search warrant to look for evidence in the case. Travis’ wife managed to get away from her husband and run to a neighboring home where she called police on Tuesday, telling them Travis had a gun to her head at one point so that she could not yell for help.
“There were signs this was possibly a drug house. Video cameras and such watching the entrance and exits to the house, so part of what we did when we went in was search for fruits of the crime so we are hoping to find some evidentiary value from the video system also,” Warren Police Capt. Robert Massucci said.
The victim is out of the hospital and was back at the police station Thursday afternoon for questioning. She said she and the baby are doing fine after the ordeal.
Travis could face more charges once the investigation is complete.
