A 48-year-old El Centro woman reportedly held captive in her apartment by her son for 11 hours Friday and Saturday fled to the police station when her son fell asleep.
El Centro police arrested Francisco Felix, 25, shortly after Maria Del Carmen Felix escaped to the police station about 7 a.m.
The woman alleged her son, who had been out of town and returned just days earlier, had come home about 8 p.m. Friday upset.
According to El Centro police Sgt. Mike Beltran, Mrs. Felix reported her son held a knife and threatened her. When she tried to leave, she alleged he pushed her into her room.
