AUSTIN -- A SWAT standoff has ended peacefully in South Austin. The incident started as an aggravated kidnapping.

Police say a woman called to report that her roommate was taken at gunpoint to Blarwood Drive. Officers went to the home and no one answered, so they called SWAT knowing the suspect may be armed.

APD says the woman came out uninjured around 4:20 a.m. The suspect turned himself in 25 minutes later.

He is now in police custody.
