A Quincy man was arrested on multiple charges Monday night after police officers were called to a residence in the 800 block of South 19th on a domestic disturbance complaint.

Police said Preston L. Steinhour, 31, arrested on suspicion of armed violence, aggravated assault, resisting a peace officer and disorderly conduct. He was lodged in the Adams County Jail.

Quincy police reported a woman called 911 at 8:36 p.m. and said she was forced to flee the residence because her husband was armed with a knife in the basement and out of control, but that her two small children were still inside.

When officers arrived, they immediately removed a 4-year-old and 9-month-old from the residence, police said. Officers said they then found Steinhour in the basement and ordered him to drop the knife, which he eventually did. However, police said Steinhour continued to threaten officers, and Tasers were used to subdue him.

Police said the woman and two children were not injured.
