Man Barricades Himself in Apartment With Child

All ended peacefully after a tense standoff involving a man who allegedly held a young girl hostage inside a Trenton, N.J. apartment for several hours this morning.

Police responded to the 200 block of Coolidge Avenue after an armed man barricaded himself inside a unit around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to Trenton Police.

A woman and a one-year-old were able to get out of the home but the man remained in the building with the three-year-old, according to police.

Police told NBC10 that they believed the man was armed but they didn't say with what type of weapon.

Around 10 a.m., the man turned himself over without incident, according to police.

Both kids were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
