A Sioux City man is facing numerous charges after allegedly attacking his wife and son with a machete and then trying to burn his house down on Sunday night.
31-year-old Cedric Lawson is charged with aggravated domestic assault, two counts of first degree arson, and eluding.
Police say Lawson attacked his wife and her son in their home with a machete.
He then tried to force his way in while they hid after the machete attack.
The victims told police Lawson poured gasoline inside through the partly-opened door and tried to set the house on fire.
Lawson is being held in the Woodbury County Jail on $50,000 bond.
