HANFORD, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Hanford woman and her newborn are safe after police say they were forced to escape from a man armed with a loaded gun.
20-year-old Raven Ortega was arrested on Tuesday for assault and weapons charges.
We're told it all began just after midnight when a call came from a home on Chianti Way and Centennial Drive.
The woman told officers Ortega was under the influence and had pointed a gun at her.
The new mother locked herself and her baby in a bedroom before they got out through a window.
Authorities were able to call Ortega and came out of the home.
He was arrested and during a search, police say they found a backpack with a loaded rifle, suspected drugs and a large amount of money.
Ortega is a convicted felon.
He was booked into the Kings County Jail.
