The suspects ex-wife told police that 45-year-old Michael Glaser was drinking and wanted to talk about their relationship, according to police reports obtained by FOX 17 News. The argument escalated. He wanted to see the children and he smashed her cell phone when she went for it to call 911. He then poured wine on her and said he was going to get a knife. The incident continued as Glaser cut himself and hit his ex-wife, smearing blood on her face.
Glaser then stated that he was going to kill all five of the children, according to the affidavit. He jumped at his ex-wife with the knife and put his hands around her neck. The son saw this and went to get a bb gun to protect his mom.
Glaser again allegedly said he'd kill the children when his ex-wife attempted to leave the house. But the family escaped to a neighbors house.
The ex-wife was treated for minor injuries.
Glaser was apprehended and jailed on $110,000 bond on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and interference with an emergency call.
