Person in custody after FBI Cyber Task Force raid in San Diego's Bay Ho neighborhood

Officials have not identified the suspect who was arrested around 6 a.m.

FBI agents remained on the scene well after the raid, which a witness said started at around 1:30 a.m.

FBI personnel arrested a person Tuesday during an early morning raid at a Bay Ho-area apartment complex, the federal agency reported.

Video footage shot during the raid shows agents dressed in black jackets with FBI Cyber Task Force printed on the back milling around the complex in the 4000 block of Huerfano Avenue, just east of Morena Boulevard and north of Balboa Avenue.

"The FBI was present this morning, conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity," said Kira Boyd, a spokesperson for the agency. "There is one subject in custody. As the investigation is ongoing, I decline to comment further."

An upstairs resident of the complex described being awoken at about 1:30 a.m. by loud "banging" coming from a ground-floor unit just below her apartment.

"And [I] looked out my window," the woman said, " and they pulled one guy out in a hoodie."

She described seeing numerous armed agents.

"They had, like, big guns and helmets and lots of people," she said while standing outside her residence with her dog.

No additional information has yet been made public.
