SPRINGFIELD, Mich. — A man is facing charges after deputies in Calhoun County says he threatened a woman with a firearm.

Deputies were called to a home around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Avenue C and N. 16th Street in Springfield after the woman told them she was being threatened with a gun by a man who was on drugs.

The woman was eventually let out of the home unharmed but the suspect then barricaded himself inside the home and failed to communicate with deputies, according to the sheriff’s office.

After a two-hour standoff, the suspect was taken into custody. He is facing charges for felonious assault and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

No names have been released.
