Overland Park man charged with aggravated assault, criminal restraint for allegedly forcing women to stay in condo

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — An Overland Park man is charged with two counts of criminal restraint and two counts of aggravated assault after two women told police he held them against their will.

Police told FOX 4 the women were acquainted with the Antonio Valencia,  33, and went to his condo Wednesday at 95th and Nall, but he wouldn’t let them leave the Chalet Condominiums.

Two nearby schools, Indian Woods Middle School and John Diemer Elementary School, were on soft lockdown during the standoff.
