A daylong standoff between police and a domestic violence suspect in Redwood City today has ended.

James McGee, 54, a retired police officer from Redwood City, allegedly assaulted a woman at a home in the 700 block of Windsor Way before refusing police commands to leave the home. ABC7 News identified McGee as a retired Redwood City police officer.

Police responded to the home about 2 a.m. today, contacted the woman in front of the residence, and she told them she was assaulted by McGee who remained inside the home. She was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Officers connected with the suspect by phone and he refused to leave, police said. A perimeter was established around the home and attempts to negotiate a peaceful resolution throughout the morning failed, police said.

Roads were closed off and residents were recommended to voluntarily evacuate as the standoff continued throughout the day.

McGee was eventually taken into custody without further incident, police said.
