She told police her husband had come home drunk and starting blasting music, they said. When she asked him to urn it down because the children were sleeping, he began "acting irrationally," police said.

Authorities said the woman locked herself and the children in a bedroom when Navarro-Rivas armed himself with a "fixed-blade kitchen knife" and began slashing and stabbing walls and doors in the home.

Police said Navarro-Rivas was not armed upon their arrival, but a kitchen knife was collected as evidence.

Navarro-Rivas faces charges of second-degree threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon, disorderly conduct and two counts risk of injury to a child.He was held on $5,000 and scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
