San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's officials say a late-night stabbing turned standoff in rural Arroyo Grande is over and one man in custody.
SLO Co. Sheriff's Department Watch Commander Brian Hascall tells KBSY News Five Cities Fire and San Luis Ambulance responded to a medical call on Left Lane near Lopez Drive around 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Hascall says 38 year old Thomas Kadota called emergency crews requesting medical aid for his elderly mother.
Kadota reportedly became agitated and stabbed a paramedic in the back with a kitchen knife. The EMT had minor injuries and was treated.
Cmdr. Hascall says Kadota's mother was evacuated from the home as more law enforcement officials arrived.
Kadota remained inside his home through the night as officers continued to negotiate. K9 units were also called to the scene.
Officers created a perimeter around the home and after 5 1/2 hours of negotiation, Kadota was taken into custody without incident.
