ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Scary moments for a woman in Hobbs as her estranged husband went to her home and threatened her and her teenage niece with a gun.

26-year-old Manuel Quiroz was arrested.

Authorities say Quiroz showed up at her home with a gun and because she feared for her life, she let him inside.

That's when he began searching every room.

The woman told police that he said he was looking to see if there was a man there.

He then pointed the gun at her 16-year-old niece and asked, "where are you hiding him?"

He left the home in a vehicle and police searched for him but were not able to find him.

At the time, Quiroz was on probation and parole.

He was later arrested and is now facing several charges.
