ROLLINS, Mont. (AP) _ A man accused of abducting a Nebraska teen-ager from a mall parking lot nearly a week ago surrendered early Thursday to authorities in Montana.

Authorities said Anne Sluti, 17, of Kearney, Neb., was safe and being checked out at a hospital. Zappa surrendered peacefully.

Zappa had been holed up with the girl in a secluded summer cabin in Rollins, Mont., since Wednesday, when police surrounded the home.

The standoff ended about 3:15 a.m. with Zappa's surrender.
