EWA BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man who was taken into custody after barricading himself and involving police in a standoff in Ewa Beach has been charged.

Mark Char was charged with place to keep and first degree terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $25,000 and was posted.

Earlier this week, units from the Honolulu Police Department's Specialized Services Division were called to a home on Halolani Street in Ewa Beach after a man, who was reported to be armed, barricaded himself inside.

Police said no hostages were involved, but some surrounding neighbors were evacuated from their homes as a safety precaution.
