Standoff with parolee ends in Mission District
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.
The sister is expected to be okay.
The SWAT team moved in to capture the parolee, but he snuck into an adjoining home, nearly evading cops.

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