BOONE COUNTY - Columbia Police arrested Christopher Moore Sunday night after a standoff that began in the afternoon, according to CPD. The standoff happened on West Cunningham Drive just north of Columbia city limits.

CPD obtained a search warrant for an apartment on West Cunningham Drive. They say they called out to the suspect but he did not respond, so they entered the premises and took him into custody. 

The department began their investigation Sunday morning around 3 a.m. in connection with a home invasion on Old 63 North. Police said Moore broke into a woman's home and used a gun to force her to have sex with him.

Moore faces charges of felony rape, felony sodomy, armed criminal action, burglary, tampering with evidence, domestic assault and more.
