The man arrested after an 18-hour standoff in Jupiter has been ordered to undergo a mental evaluation following his appearance in court Wednesday morning.

Cyrus Ahyoung faces 3 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, 3 counts of kidnapping/false imprisonment of an adult and child, battery, and two counts of cruelty toward a child-aggravated child abuse.

He surrendered Monday afternoon at a home on Cat Rock Lane where he lived with his girlfriend and their two children.

Police blocked off much of the neighborhood out of concern he might hurt himself or others.

Police described him as an “accomplished marksman” and they believed him to be heavily armed.
