YUMA, AZ- A man who barricaded himself from police after allegedly assaulting a woman with a box cutter has been charged.

Chad Diener appeared in Yuma Justice Court Thursday afternoon.

The Yuma County Attorney's Office filed a felony complaint against the 36 year old.

He's being charged with three counts of aggravated assault. Two of those offenses have to do with a minor.

Diener was arrested early Tuesday morning after a 5 hour stand-off with Yuma Police in the 2500 block of S Virginia Drive.

YPD says Diener got into an altercation with a 40 year old woman and her 8 year old son Monday evening. 

They say the woman received non-life threatening injuries from a box cutter Diener had.

The state requested Diener's bond be reduced to $250,000. However, a prosecutor was not present to explain why they wanted it reset to that amount.

Judge Gregory Stewart kept Diener's bond at $400,000. 

He's due back in court for a pre-preliminary hearing on October 12 at 4 p.m.
