SAN ANTONIO - A standoff at a Southeast Side home has ended peacefully with a man who was wanted on felony warrants in custody, according to San Antonio police.

SWAT and hostage negotiators successfully talked him into surrendering after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Officer Douglas Greene, a public information officer for SAPD, said the man barricaded himself inside a home in the 600 block of Cravens Street after 9 p.m. Tuesday when police showed up at his door.

Members of the street crimes unit had been looking for him all day in connection with multiple felony warrants, Greene said.

At one point, the suspect threatened to harm himself and police, he said.

The standoff, instead, ended peacefully with the man being taken into custody.

Police did not release his name right away.
