Man Who Attacked Sister With Oar Arrested After Six-Hour Standoff

SWAT officers arrested a man after a six-hour standoff early this morning after he attacked his family and barricaded himself inside his Beacon Hill home.

Officers were called to a home near 20th Ave South and South Lucile Street around 6:30 PM, after the suspect attacked his sister with a boat paddle.

When police arrived at the home and attempted to contact the suspect, he barricaded himself inside and refused to respond to officers and a police negotiator.

Negotiators worked for several hours to get the man to come out of the home and surrender, but after approximately six hours, SWAT officers served a warrant on the home around 12:30 AM and took the man into custody.

Police later booked the man into the King County Jail on Investigation of Domestic Violence Assault.
