A man has been arrested after threatening a delivery driver who left a package at the wrong house.

Lt. David Mattingly, Sedgwick County, said deputies were called to a home near 167th St. West and 21 St. North Tuesday morning. A man who worked for FedEx told authorities he left a package at a home, then the homeowner ordered the driver to pick up the package and vacate the property.

Mattingly said the man was holding a shotgun. No shots were fired.

"We do not know his motive," Mattingly said. "But the man felt the need to protect his property at this time."

The driver was dressed and identifiable as a FedEx employee.

A 71-year-old man was booked into the Sedgwick County Detention Center for aggravated assault.
