A man is in custody after he allegedly stabbed a woman and then got into a standoff with SWAT officers in Wauconda late Monday evening.

The Wauconda Police Department was initially called at 5 p.m. to a report of a woman stabbed in the 900 block of Sheridan Drive. Numerous police officers and a K-9 unit tried to locate the woman but were unsuccessful.

Several hours later at 8:30 p.m., police were called back to the same area for a disturbance call. Officers found the woman from earlier, Nicole L. Wolf, 36, of Trevor, Wisconsin, who claimed she was stabbed by Timothy J. Holm, 36, of McHenry.

Wolf told police that Holm was inside the residence and held a gun to her head. When police approached the home they saw the man run to the back bedroom. A perimeter was established and several homes were evacuated in the area.

Holm refused to exit the home for police and a standoff ensued. Holm surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody following several hours of negotiation, according to the Wauconda Police Department.

Wolf was treated by paramedics and transported to an area hospital where she was later released into police custody on an outstanding arrest warrant.

Both subjects are being held on warrants, and charges are pending against them. The incident remains under investigation by police.
