A York man turned himself in Monday night after he was accused of holding his wife and two children at gunpoint the night before, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
Steven Michael Zioba, 35, turned himself in at the Moss Justice Center at about 5 p.m. Tuesday, the report says.
Deputies responded to Zioba’s home on Apple Blossom Road just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
The victim told deputies Zioba had just left the house in a black 1994 Fort Mustang convertible with a 9mm handgun, the report says.

The victim said she and her sons, a 6-year-old and an 11-year-old, had just gotten home from a friend’s house when she and Zioba got into a “verbal altercation,” the report says.
She said she went into the bedroom and shut the door to stop the argument, but Zioba came in the room and got a 9mm handgun from the dresser, the report says.
She told officers he started yelling at her and pointing the gun at her, the report says. She said she “began to yell to her kids to run away and call for help,” the report says.
The victim said Zioba followed the children outside so she “grabbed them by the shirt and held them behind her while Steven was yelling at them and pointing the gun at them,” the report says.
The report says the victim said Zioba fired the gun at the ground three times, and officer found three 9mm shell casings.
Zioba has been charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and three counts of pointing and presenting a firearm.
