BALTIMORE (AP) - Authorities say a Baltimore man is facing several criminal charges after a police standoff that led to several hours of negotiations before he surrendered.

Police received a call about 3:30 p.m. Saturday regarding an armed man on Baker Street. Officers were met by a woman who said her boyfriend, identified as 55-year-old Lenny Epps, had assaulted her inside the home and refused to let her leave. She told police she escaped by climbing on the roof then jumping to the ground.

Police closed off roads around the area and called in special operations unit. Authorities say Epps surrendered around 9:45 p.m. Saturday after several hours of negotiations.

Authorities said Sunday that Epps has been charged with rape, involuntary detention, and several assault and weapons related charges.
