San Diego police officers wearing gas masks and with guns drawn surrounded a Pacific Beach motel Thursday night where a woman said a man was holding her hostage.
The woman called police to the Mission Bay Motel on Mission Boulevard near Pacific Beach Drive around 8 p.m.
She claimed she was being held against her will in Room 120. The woman managed to escape the room safely.
Officers used a bullhorn to try and draw out the male suspect who refused to leave the room. With a stick, they broke out the window in the front of the room and then fired pepper spray inside.
Several hours into the standoff, things escalated and officers sent a K-9 unit into the room.
They say the man fought with officers once they were inside. An officer was injured by a dog bite during the scuffle.
The suspect was brought out of the motel room in handcuffs.
He will likely face an injury to officer charge because and a violation of probation charge, officials said.
