TIGARD, Ore. (KOIN) — For about 6 hours, an armed man engaged in a standoff with Tigard police before surrendering to face a series of charges, including attempted rape.

The incident began at the Greenburg Apartments, 9570 SW Greenburg Road, around 6:10 p.m. Friday, Tigard police said. The man, who has not yet been publicly identified, allegedly threatened a woman in an apartment with a gun. She and another witness were able to get out safely on their own.

For the next several hours, law enforcement tried to talk to the man in a variety of ways — phone calls, text message and loud hails on a megaphone. Nearby residents were told to shelter in place.

Around 12:30 a.m. Saturday the man came outside and was taken into custody to the Washington County Jail. He’s facing attempted rape, unlawful use of a weapon and menacing charges. He is also being held on an existing, outstanding warrant.
