    Sheriff's deputies say a woman in her mid-40s barricaded herself in a Castaic home after allegedly kidnapping a man earlier in the morning Aug. 13, 2014.

    A woman surrendered Wednesday afternoon more than three hours after barricading herself in her mobile home in Castaic following an alleged kidnapping incident, sheriff’s deputies said.

    The woman in her mid 40s, whose identity was not immediately disclosed, was possibly armed with a gun. She allegedly forced a man to drive her to a location near her home in the Lakehills Mobile Estates in the 27700 block of Parker Road sometime before 10 a.m., according to deputies.

    The man, who was working in the neighborhood at the time of the incident, was later released unharmed.

    She was able to make it to a residence, where she barricaded herself inside. It is believed she was alone inside the home.

    She voluntarily surrendered just before 2 p.m. The investigation into the incident is on-going, deputies said.

    As a precaution, surrounding mobile homes in the park were evacuated during the standoff, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
