Oklahoma City police released new details on a standoff that ended peacefully over the weekend. They said it started with a woman being held against her will.

"It was very apparent that she had just been assaulted,” Oklahoma City Police Department Sgt. Dillon Quirk said. "She had serval injuries throughout her body and face."

The woman told police that 30-year-old Jeffrey Been had assaulted her for several hours before she was able to escape the home.

Reports said the woman had a small cut on her stomach where she said Been tried to stab her.

The woman also said he put a shotgun to her head and pulled the trigger. Fortunately, she unloaded the gun the night before.

Police said the victim was able to escape when Been was asleep. Police then surrounded the home.

"Ultimately, (they) take the male into custody after a brief standoff," Quirk said.

Been is being held on several complaints, including kidnapping. His bond has been set at $500,000.
