Jonathan Howard Wilson was charged with unlawful imprisonment when he was arraigned Monday in Ottawa County District Court in Hudsonville, police said. Bond was set at $5,000.

A 20-year-old female called for help late Saturday afternoon when she escaped from her ex-boyfriend while his attention was diverted, Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Mark Bennett said.

The woman had gone to Wilson’s 48th Avenue apartment complex to try to talk him into getting help. He had threatened to harm himself after they broke up, Bennett said.

Police responded to the apartment, arrested Wilson and confiscated several weapons, Bennett said.

The incident is still under investigation.
