A 51-year-old man is accused of choking and punching his ex-girlfriend and then ramming her son with a car on the city's north side, according to the Madison Police Department.
Police officials said that the man was arrested at about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. They said he was hiding in the basement of a home on the 3700 block of School Road.
Police said the man was wanted in connection to a series of crimes that took place Monday night.
Violence began when the man's ex-girlfriend agreed to get into his car and speak with him, police said. The woman said the man drove to a Packers Avenue parking lot, where he punched and choked her after she refused to rekindle their relationship.
During the attack, the woman said the suspect produced a knife and threatened to kill her and her family, according to the police report.
The woman was able to get away from the suspect, but he followed her to her apartment in the 3700 block of Packers Avenue, police said.
