TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW-TV) A man suspected of robbing and injuring a woman is in custody after a short standoff with Topeka Police Tuesday night.

Lt. Jack Mackey told 13 News that a woman walked into the Law Enforcement Center around 10 p.m. Tuesday evening and told police she was hurt after a man robbed her.

Mackey said the woman identified the suspect as Marvin Carl Hall, 45, who was booked into the Shawnee County Department of Corrections for aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

Officials say she gave him a ride home last night after noticing him walking.

Once in Hall's home, officials say he robbed the woman with a hammer and punched her in the head.

Hall made the victim undress in order to check her clothes for money and then stole items from her car.

The victim then drove herself to the Law Enforcement Center after Hall eventually told her to leave.

She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Shortly after, authorities showed up at the home at 725 SE 34th street, knocked on the door and Hall answered, but immediately closed the door after officers asked him to come out.

Around midnight, police used an armored vehicle to knock down the door. The suspect surrendered without incident and was arrested.

No one was hurt during the standoff.
