A SWAT team arrested an assault suspect after he barricaded himself inside a warehouse in El Monte for about two hours on Sunday afternoon, police said.

The standoff began shortly after 3:30 pm. in the area of Peck Road and Magnolia Street, according to El Monte Police Department Sgt. Aram Choe.

"We received reports of a woman being attacked by a man with an unknown blunt object," the sergeant said.

Responding officers encountered the woman, who was safe, Choe said. "She informed us that her assailant ran inside a warehouse at the 2800 block of Peck Road."

Officers ordered the suspect to come out and surrender, but he refused. A SWAT team was summoned to take charge of the scene.

Negotiators persuaded the suspect to surrender without a struggle about 5:30 p.m., Choe said.

His identity was not immediately available.
