LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is under arrest and facing several charges after deputies say he kidnapped, punched, and choked a 4-year-old girl and her mother at gunpoint.

Logan County Sheriff’s deputies say they got a call about a domestic battery last week at the 1600 block of South Western Ave. in Central Logan County.

When deputies got there, they found Jonathan Lee Goodman, 30,  inside the home threatening suicide with a rifle.

A deputy was able to talk the man out of the house without harming himself.

A woman and her 4-year-old daughter told deputies Goodman was angry because the girl was upset and crying over some bathroom issues.

They claim that Goodman threw the little girl by the hair across a room on two occasions and punched her in the face.

Deputies say Goodman also choked the woman when she tried to protect the child, then choked the girl and held them both hostage.

The woman said they weren’t allowed to leave the home and that Goodman threw a sword and pipe wrench at her.

She claims Goodman also threatened them with a rifle and shot at them twice.

Neither victim was struck by the gunshots from the rifle.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Human Services is now investigating.

Deputies arrested Goodman and charged him with assault with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, child abuse,  and domestic abuse by strangulation.

Goodman was arraigned and is being held on $250,000 bail.
