SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A man surrendered to police after a brief standoff Saturday afternoon after allegedly assaulting his sister.
The parolee surrendered around 4 p.m. Saturday. Police say he ran into a home on Folsom Street after assaulting his sister four hours earlier.

Police would not say why the parolee was wanted, but they emphasized that he was armed with a gun.
