GARRETT, Ind. (WPTA) - Police say a man who barricaded himself inside a Garrett Apartment on Monday has been charged with rape.

According to police, 59-year-old John Costanzo was arrested after a three-and-a-half-hour standoff with police when police tried to serve a warrant at a home on south Hamsher Street.

The standoff impacted Garrett schools as parents could only pick up their children while police were at the scene.

Police say they believed Costanzo was armed and dangerous at one point.

Costanzo is held at the Steuben County Jail.
