Broken Arrow Police say Bayless barricaded himself inside a home with the victim, eventually releasing her, but told police they would have to come inside and get him. 

The woman told police when she was trying to leave the home, Bayless "zapped" her in the chest with a stun gun and hit on the head with the blunt end of a knife.
