Police said a man is in custody after a more than three-hour standoff situation on Winbourne Avenue and Acadian Thruway in Baton Rouge.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported officers arrested Floyd Stevens after he surrendered peacefully. He is charged with armed robbery.

Investigators said they believe the incident started when Stevens allegedly robbed a woman at knife-point. The victim claims he stole cash and a cell phone. However, she had a second phone and used that to call police. 

Stevens was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
