A Sacramento man suspected in a stabbing in Northern California surrendered to SWAT members Saturday after a lengthy standoff in Temecula, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Arthur Ben Taylor, 59, was arrested for an assault with a deadly weapon warrant and was booked into the Southwest Detention Center.

At approximately 12:52 p.m., officers from the Temecula Police Department responded to the 31900 block of Monique Circle in Temecula regarding the report of a wanted suspect at a residence. Upon officers' arrival, they learned that a male adult at the location was wanted for a stabbing that had occurred earlier in the day in Northern California.

Officers learned that the suspect had been seen at the residence and that his vehicle was still at the scene, police said. The officers made numerous attempts to have the suspect exit the residence, but he refused and remained inside.

Because the suspect refused to exit the residence and barricaded himself inside, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department SWAT Team responded. After a lengthy standoff, the suspect surrendered peacefully to SWAT members and was taken into custody.
