Lancaster police seized 27 firearms from a home in the town Thursday morning during a domestic call.

They also arrested a man, Richard R. Brant, but would not release Brant’s age or say where in town that he lives.

Brant greeted officers at his door Tuesday morning after police were called to report a stabbing at the address, according to a press release issued by the department Thursday night.

He told officers he had not been stabbed, but when officers found his wife at a neighboring address, she told them she had stabbed Brant while he was choking her during an argument, according to the release.

Brant was charged with criminal obstruction of breathing and taken into custody after he was treated for a minor stab wound to his upper body, police said.

Officers reported finding 27 firearms in the Brant home and said they took all the weapons into police custody.
