The suspect, Archila Fidel, is facing charges after reportedly breaking into his ex-wife’s Providence home armed with a knife. According to Chief Oscar Perez, Fidel assaulted his ex-wife before her two sons intervened and were injured during the struggle. The victims managed to escape, and Fidel barricaded himself inside a home on Minto St. with a shotgun, threatening to use it. After an hour-long standoff, negotiators convinced Fidel to surrender, and he was charged with domestic breaking and entering, domestic felony assault, and domestic strangulation.
