On Saturday the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office was called to the 2700 block of Wyndham Way in West Lafayette at 5:45 a.m.
They were responding to a report of a man with a gun.

Police said the woman escaped from the home after 23-year-old Emerson Evans III threatened to shoot her.

They say Evans left the home before police arrived. With the assistance of three other agencies, deputies set up a perimeter near Wal-mart and the celery bog.
Deputies said they located Evans using a drone and K-9 officers, then took him into custody.

He faces multiple preliminary charges including intimidation with a deadly weapon and theft of a firearm.

During the investigation police said he was involved in a domestic disturbance at the same location earlier in the week.
They said because of that incident Evans faces additional preliminary charges of domestic battery and strangulation.
