LONGMONT, Colo., March 3 (UPI) -- A Colorado man was stun-gunned and then arrested for allegedly charging at Boulder County sheriff's deputies with a broom, officials said.

John Sena, 56, was stun-gunned on his front yard in Longmont Saturday after allegedly charging at deputies who were at his home to arrest his daughter, The Daily Camera, Boulder, Colo., reported.

Two officers arrived at Sena's home to serve a $20,000 traffic warrant on Melissa Sena, 27, said Sgt. Jason Heathman with the sheriff's office.

They could hear a baby crying, but no one answered the door for about 15 minutes.

The officers said they thought the baby was left alone, so they attempted to open the door, Heathman said. That's when John Sena charged at them with a broom, forcing them to retreat to the edge of the yard. the Daily Camera said. The deputies then used a stun gun on him, and placed him under arrest, the report said.

Sena was charged with menacing and second-degree assault on a peace officer after the incident.

Melissa Sena, meanwhile, ran out the back door of the home, Heathman said. Officers were looking for her, but she had not been located as of Saturday afternoon.
