SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Novato police arrested a man Sunday morning after he allegedly forced his way into a home and threatened a woman, violating a restraining order.

He was located near Olive Avenue and Redwood Boulevard and arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, burglary, false imprisonment, parole violation and possession of a deadly weapon.
