A man who confronted his ex-girlfriend Thursday at her Golden Hill apartment with a golf club in his hands and would not go away after she declined to let him in was arrested following a 40-minute standoff with patrol officers, police said.

The woman made a 911 just before 1 p.m. to report that her 31-year-old former boyfriend was outside her residence in the 800 block of 24th Street and was ignoring her requests to leave her alone, according to San Diego police.

When officers arrived, the man refused to drop the golf club and surrender, said SDPD spokesman Billy Hernandez.

During the ensuing face-off, police determined that the man was the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant, according to Hernandez.

After trying in vain to persuade the man to cooperate, officers used a non-lethal compliance device to subdue him, then took him into custody. It was not immediately clear what type of apparatus they deployed.

The arrestee’s name was not immediately available.
