SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An hours-long standoff in Sioux Falls has ended peacefully after a man who refused to leave a house surrendered to authorities.

Police in Sioux Falls say a police detective investigating a domestic assault from last week tried to talk with the man at the house around noon Tuesday. Police say the detective left the home after the man refused to speak, and at that point, the man’s girlfriend escaped the home and contacted authorities.

Police say the man had held his girlfriend in the house for a day or two.

Police were then dispatched to the scene and later joined by a SWAT team. The man and a friend, who haven’t been identified, surrendered at 4:10 p.m.

Police say detectives are working to determine what charges the man will face.
