Armed Man Ends 90-Minute Standoff At Northern Iowa Restaurant
HUMBOLDT, Iowa (AP) An armed man has surrendered peacefully after holding officers at bay for 90 minutes inside a northern Iowa restaurant.
The Humboldt Police Department says 34-year-old Adolfo Flores is charged with two counts of false imprisonment, domestic assault and two weapons counts. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
Officers were sent to Lomitas Mexican Restaurant in Humboldt around 4 p.m. Tuesday because someone had reported that an armed man had entered and taken hostages. Police say the hostages were soon released and that Flores was talked into surrendering by 5:30 p.m.
No injuries have been reported.
