KILLEEN (August 8, 2014) Andres Carrisalez, 31, of Killeen was in custody Friday afternoon facing a charge of assault with bodily injury on a family member after a two-hour standoff during which a woman was held hostage.

Carrisalez was also named in outstanding traffic warrants and a federal warrant charging human trafficking, police said.

Officers first responded at around 3:50 a.m. to a home at 2701 Armadillo Dr. after a report of a domestic disturbance in which a woman was assaulted by her boyfriend, police said.

The man was gone before officers arrived.

A short time later officers were advised that the man had returned, might be armed, and that he was holding the woman against her will, police said.

The Killeen Police Department’s Tactical Response Unit was sent to the scene and negotiated with the man for about two hours before convincing him to surrender at around 8:50 a.m. Friday, police said.

The woman wasn’t harmed.

It’s not clear whether the man had a weapon.
