A Caledonia man is facing multiple charges, including kidnapping, following a standoff with local law enforcement this past weekend.

On May 8, the Oxford Police Department responded to a call in the 100 block of Eagle Point Loop for a reported domestic disturbance. According to OPD, dispatch learned that a person inside was being held against their will. Upon arrival, a Crisis Intervention Officer attempted to make contact but was unable to hold consistent communications with the subjects inside the residence.
