Man who barricaded himself in home, surrenders to police

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. (AP) --A man who barricaded himself in a suburban Chicago apartment before surrendering hours later has been charged with felony counts predatory criminal sexual assault, child pornography and other charges.

Police in Crystal Lake say they went to the house in response to a call of a burglary in progress when they were confronted by 24-year-old Matthew R. Reder of McHenry.

They say Reder threatened officers with a knife before retreating to a bathroom of the home.

Police said Reder, who was being sought on arrest warrants from McHenry and DuPage counties, was taken to McHenry County Jail.
