A man who ran into the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge looking for help was arrested instead.

An Oklahoma City police officer was eating lunch Tuesday at the lodge at 1624 S Agnew Ave. when he saw a man banging on the glass window, bleeding from his hand and smearing blood on the door, according to the police report.

Modesto Rodriguez Villa, 59, told police he was being chased by two men and cut his hand while jumping a fence during the chase.

Villa told police he and his wife were arguing when her brother-in-law came over and pointed a small black semi-automatic gun at him. Villa said he went to a neighbor's house to call 911 and that's when the two men started chasing him.

Police searched Villa and found a clear plastic bag containing 89.5 grams of a purple crystalline substance and $16,590. The substance tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the report.

Police went to Villa's home and interviewed a woman with a cut on her face, according the report.

She told police that she and Villa had been fighting. She said he kicked a large hole through a door, threw her on the ground, threw a knife at her and threatened to kill her.

She also told police Villa had struck her head with a hammer a few weeks ago and the stitches had been removed recently.

Police took the knife and also found two handguns on the property.

Villa was arrested on complaints of assault and battery, trafficking controlled dangerous substances, possession of drug proceeds, possession of a firearm in commission of a felony and domestic abuse.

He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail, where he is being held without bail. has disabled the comments for this article.
