A Columbus man wanted for holding a city woman at gunpoint in her residence ended after a brief standoff Monday night.
Dennis Wenger (pictured), 66, reportedly got into an argument with Cathy Levan, 62, of 720 East Columbus Avenue, Monday morning around one o'clock.
Levan said that Wenger beat her up and held her at gunpoint with a .22 rifle.
She eventually escaped Monday night around 6:30 when she told the male acquaintance she was going outside to water her flowers.
Levan went to a neighbor's home at 708 East Columbus Avenue and contacted the Bellefontaine Police Department.
Four officers surrounded Levan's house and ordered Wenger outside.
After an officer called his cell phone, Wenger surrendered without incident.
He was taken into custody on the front porch and charged with felony counts of kidnapping and domestic violence.
Authorities saw bruising on Levan's mouth and right eye. She was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Bellefontaine Fire and EMS.
The Logan County Sheriff's Office set up a perimeter area during the arrest.
The Bellefontaine Special Response Team was put on standby, but never responded to the scene.
The .22 rifle was found in a closet.
Wenger was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
