A Jamestown man who held a woman at knifepoint Saturday is facing a host of charges.

Police took 37-year-old Peter D. Rosado into custody after first responding around 9 a.m. to a West Eighth Street residence for a report of a person with a weapon. When on scene, officers learned Rosado was allegedly holding a woman at knifepoint in a hostage situation.
