EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) - A man allegedly armed with two swords has been arrested after a six-hour standoff in San Diego County.

El Cajon police say they were called to an apartment shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday by a woman who said her husband had beaten her.

She was treated for facial injuries.

Police say a 38-year-old man was seen with a machete and several knives and that he threatened to stab officers and kill himself during a standoff.

A SWAT team and crisis negotiators were dispatched but couldn't get the man to surrender.

Police fired tear gas at around 5 a.m. Wednesday. They say the man left the apartment a half-hour later with two swords and was arrested after being shot with a sponge projectile.

He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
