    The Harbor Lights Condominiums in Kahului.

A 49-year-old man surrendered to police today after he allegedly barricaded himself for approximately eight hours in an apartment at the Harbor Lights Condominiums in Kahului, according to the Maui Police Department.

Police said officers met with a female at approximately 11 p.m. Monday who reported a male acquaintance allegedly assaulted her while she was in her apartment.

When officers attempted to enter the apartment, the suspect of no local address barricaded the door, according to a news release from the police department.

The police department’s Special Response Team including negotiators responded to the scene after the suspect refused to come out of the unit.

As a precautionary measure, the University of Hawaii-Maui College had temporarily shut down its Cooperative Extension Building, Community Services Building and Rural Development Project buildings that are located near Harbor Lights as police addressed the situation.

The suspect surrendered to police at approximately 7:45 a.m. today.

Police arrested him on suspicion of abuse of a family or household member and kidnapping.

The investigation is ongoing.
