Man faces numerous charges after Trenton standoff

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Numerous charges have been filed against a Trenton man who allegedly held his two young children and their mother hostage during a lengthy standoff at a city apartment building.

Kevin Robinson faces three counts of kidnapping and two counts each of aggravated assault and child endangerment. The 21-year-old is also charged with weapons offenses and making terroristic threats.

The charges stem from a four-hour standoff that occurred early Tuesday at an apartment building where the woman and the children live. Authorities say Robinson had his 3-year-old daughter with him throughout the standoff, but the 19-year-old woman and their year-old son were able to escape shortly after it started.

The children were not hurt during the standoff, but the woman suffered minor injuries to her back, head, and arm.
