Police arrest woman after hourslong standoff in San Francisco

Officers arrested a woman Saturday after a fight injured one and led to a four hour standoff near San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighborhood, according to police. 

The fight happened sometime before 11:40 a.m. Saturday, according to Sgt. Kathryn Winters with the San Francisco Police Department, who said that officers arrived to find one person who had been cut by a knife. 

While first responders took them to the hospital to be treated for a non-life threatening injury, police then located the woman suspected of the stabbing in a nearby home. 

A standoff developed after the woman refused to leave the residence. Police negotiated with the woman for around four hours, according to Winters, at which point a tactical team entered the residence and arrested her. 

Police had closed an area around Essex and Folsom streets during the standoff, which were reopened as officers left the scene.
