An hours-long standoff in Beverly Hills ended when a SWAT unit made entry and took a battery suspect into custody, Beverly Hills police said Thursday.

The barricade situation in the 100 block of North Stanley Drive began with a 911 call to police about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, Beverly Hills police Sgt. David Rudy said.

Police responded to the scene and then called in SWAT to set up a perimeter, Rudy said.

SWAT finally made entry around midnight and took the battery suspect into custody, Rudy said.

One man, a victim of the battery, was transported to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, Rudy said. The victim’s condition was unknown.

Police were still trying to sort out Thursday morning what caused the battery to occur, Rudy said.
