    After hours of negotiations with San Diego County sheriff’s deputies, a man holed up inside a Bonita home was forcefully taken into custody Sunday.

    Deputies were called to the apartment on Briarwood Road in Bonita just after 9 p.m. after a woman was allegedly assaulted by her husband.

    When deputies arrived, James Kang refused to leave the apartment and displayed knives several times, officials said.

    Deputies tried to negotiate with him for nearly three hours but they say Kang was uncooperative.

    The SWAT members used a flashbang with tear gas and that forced Kang out of the apartment.

    Officials were able to get Kang into custody. They say he was transported to jail on domestic violence charges.
