Rondell+Shavell+Baptiste,+32 (1).jpgA man accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl is in jail following a Sunday afternoon standoff with police at a Pocket-area apartment.

Rondell Shavell Baptiste (pictured), 32, is being held in Sacramento County Jail in lieu of $2 million bail.

After taking a report from the 12-year-old, investigators traced the suspect, Baptiste, to an apartment in the 7600 block of Windbridge Drive about 3:30 p.m. Baptiste initially refused to come out of the apartment, and SWAT and hostage negotiation teams were summoned, according to a Sacramento Police Department news release.

Baptiste finally surrendered and was taken into custody without further incident.

Police said the girl reported being the victim of sexual assaults that occurred over the past several months. The case is under investigation.
