(YORK TOWN) - A Tipton Man is facing burglary, criminal confinement and other preliminary charges for allegedly threatening his father and stepmother with a foot-long knife.

43-year-old Kevin L.D. Fries of Tipton was arrested Thursday after leading police on a chase along Interstate 69. He's being held at the Delaware County Jail on $115,000 bond.

The Star Press reports that Fries also faces preliminary charges of auto theft, threats with a deadly weapon, resisting law enforcement and a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Yorktown police say Fries entered his father and stepmother's Yorktown home late Wednesday night, pulled out a foot-long knife and announced, "I came here to kill you."

Fries allegedly forced his stepmother to tie up his father with neckties, stole a rifle and fled in his father's truck.
