Police in northern Illinois arrest naked hostage-taker

Police in Rockford, Illinois, have arrested a 32-year-old naked man who allegedly took a woman hostage and threw furniture out an apartment window during a standoff with authorities.

No injuries were reported in yesterday's standoff which lasted more than three hours.

Kevin Bailey was charged with assault on a police officer, unlawful restraint and criminal damage to property.

According to the Rockford Register Star, police were called to an apartment after reports of a man knocking on doors with a baseball bat.

Authorities say Bailey sprayed an officer with a fire extinguisher, ran into a woman's apartment and took her hostage.

Bailey barricaded himself in a bathroom naked. He allegedly threw a television and dresser out the window.

It was immediately unclear if Bailey had an attorney.
