JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — A Jamestown man faces a list of charges after he allegedly held a woman at knife-point during a hostage situation Saturday morning.

Jamestown Police charged Peter D. Rosado, 37, with unlawful imprisonment, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, menacing, obstructing government business, assault, resisting arrest, and reckless endangerment.
