KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WVUT) - A Vincennes man was arrested following a four hour standoff on Monday.

According to Knox County Sheriff Mike Morris, his department received a report of domestic violence Monday morning at a residence on Brown Road, just outside of Vincennes.

As Deputies arrived at the residence and attempted to make contact with 32-year-old Joshua Anthony Baker around 10 a.m., he refused to come out of the residence.

At this time, Deputies saw that Baker was armed causing a standoff situation. An arrest warrant was obtained by the Sheriff's Department for Baker on domestic battery with a deadly weapon.

A number of nearby residents were evacuated from their homes as the standoff continued. After four hours, around 1 p.m. the Sheriff Department's SWAT Unit was able to get into the home to arrest Baker.

Baker is in the Knox County Jail facing charges of criminal confinement and rape, a class 3 felony.
