CASSOPOLIS, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a standoff that began after two women on horseback were struck by a vehicle in southwestern Michigan has ended peacefully.

TV stations WNDU and WSBT report a man surrendered Wednesday morning after barricading himself in his Cass County home. According to authorities, the man apparently intentionally struck them on Tuesday night. The women and horses were reported to have minor injuries.

The standoff began after the 32-year-old refused to talk with investigators. Authorities say the man had weapons in home.

The man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, could face assault charges for injuring the women as well as other charges.
