ELKTON, Md. — An Elkton man has been charged for allegedly holding a woman hostage at gunpoint Wednesday.

It happened at a home in the 1900 block of E. Philadelphia Road.

The Cecil County Sheriff's Office became aware of the incident, when the hostage was able to free herself and call 911.

When deputies arrived, they ordered everyone in the home to come out.

Two people surrendered. Turns out both had open arrest warrants unrelated to the barricade.

Although each were inside the home when the woman was taken hostage, neither was charged for playing a role.

Officials were actually looking for 29-year-old Daniel Nash, pictured below. He apparently left the home before police got on scene, but was arrested Thursday afternoon.
