SEATTLE – A man accused of attacking his sister with a boat paddle was arrested early Thursday morning at his home in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

Police said officers were called to the home near 20th Ave S and South Lucile Street around 6:30pm.

When officers arrived the man reportedly barricaded himself inside and wouldn’t come out.

It took negotiators more than six hours to get the man to surrender.
