A 38-year-old man who cut his father, then left Bulloch County with his wife and children after threatening to kill the children and himself, has been arrested in North Carolina, authorities said.

Bulloch County sheriff's Chief Deputy Jared Akins on Tuesday confirmed a report in The Daily News of Jacksonville, North Carolina, that Daniel Howell was taken into custody there.

The Bulloch County Sheriff's Office issued a be-on-the-lookout alert on Aug. 9 saying that Howell left with his family in a white 1998 Lincoln Town Car after making the threat.

The Daily News reported on its website Monday evening that the Bulloch County arrest warrant charges Howell with aggravated assault against a family member, possession of a knife during the commission of a crime, criminal trespass and terroristic threats, and that he also was wanted on a felony probation violation.

Authorities said that besides threatening his wife and children, Howell slashed the tires of his father's vehicle and cut both of his father's arms several times on Aug. 8, according to the newspaper.

Howell was being held without bond in the Onslow County Jail in North Carolina, The Daily News reported.
