SACRAMENTO - A 42-year-old man was arrested following a police standoff in the Oak Park area of Sacramento Thursday night.
An initial Sacramento Police Department release stated Alfredo Rodriguez arrived uninvited to a family member's home on the 3400 block of 36th Street at approximately 7:20 p.m. Then, for an unknown reason, Rodriguez assaulted the woman who was able to escape the residence with her children.
Rodriguez then grabbed a knife and barricaded himself inside the home, police said.
Officers arrived at the scene and received information that another family member was possibly inside with Rodriguez. SWAT and HNT were therefore called to the scene, said police.
Soon thereafter, Rodriguez surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody on multiple charges, including assault.
The woman who was assaulted was treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
