NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches Police arrested a man after he reportedly tried to kidnap his estranged girlfriend at knifepoint before her sister came to the rescue and held him at gunpoint before officers arrived early Monday.

According to the police report, a 20-year-old woman said her ex-boyfriend, Jearld Wayne Martinez, 31, of Nacogdoches, forced his way into her house, located on the 2800 block of South Fredonia Street, at 3:30 a.m.

The woman said he held a knife to her throat and ordered him into a vehicle, with the knife still at her throat.

That was when the woman's sister intervened with a pistol and ordered Martinez to let the woman go and ordered him back into the residence, where he was held for the police, according to the report.

Police arrested the suspect on charges of first-degree aggravated kidnapping and first-degree burglary of a habitation.

The victim suffered minor cuts in the altercation and was treated by EMS at the scene, according to the report.

Police spokesman Sgt. Greg Sowell said it is hard to determine how to react to this type of situation.

"Each individual situation is different," he said. "That's kind of a spot where I couldn't make a call because I wasn't there. But apparently everything worked out OK on this one."

Jail records show Martinez was being transferred to the Angelina County Jail. A call to Sheriff Thomas Kerss on why he was being transferred there was not immediately returned Monday afternoon.
