Charges have been filed against a Redfield man who entered a hospital in Redfield Monday, brandishing a firearm and taking a 10-year-old child hostage.

 

30-year-old Matthew Mathern faces aggravated assault, child abuse and aggravating eluding for his actions Monday.  According to authorities, Mathern first led police on a high speed chase before entering the hospital and barricading himself in a room with the child.

 

Upon lengthy negotiations, authorities were able to convince Mathern to peacefully surrender the child, then later peacefully surrender himself.  No one was injured in the standoff.
