SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - Police negotiators in Superior were able to convince a domestic assault suspect to surrender following a 4-hour standoff.

Authorities said Tuesday a woman called 911 about 3 a.m. to report that she had been battered by her boyfriend and had escaped to a neighbor’s house. The woman also told police her boyfriend may have armed himself with a handgun.

SWAT team officers and crisis negotiators were sent to the home. Police say the man surrendered about 7 a.m. and was taken to the Douglas County Jail.
