ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say a 29-year-old man who barricaded himself in a home surrendered after an overnight standoff.

The case began with a domestic violence call late Saturday night in which a woman said her boyfriend had struck her several times in the face and threatened to shoot her. Police arrived to find the boyfriend, identified as Brandon Wilson, barricaded inside.

The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment while police negotiated with the suspect. SWAT officers were called to assist around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, and just before 6 a.m., Wilson emerged and surrendered.

Police say he was arrested for investigation of assault in the third degree and taken to the Anchorage Jail.
