AMERICAN FORK, Utah — An American Fork man faces several felony charges in connection with a home invasion robbery.

Charging documents allege 42-year-old Joshua J. Haskell broke into an American Fork home on Thursday, threatened a woman with a large serrated knife and tied her up with shoelaces.

"[Haskell] demanded her car keys, credit cards and cash. The victim was screaming during the incident and her son called the police who made entry and found [Haskell] in the bedroom with the victim," according to a probable cause statement.

Police said they found Haskell in possession of the woman's stolen property, a knife, gloves, a mask and methamphetamine.

Haskell has a history of drug convictions and he was on parole at the time of his arrest Thursday. He is being held without bail.

Haskell faces charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping/unlawful detention, possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and possession or use of methamphetamine.
