A 26-year-old woman is in custody after a six-hour standoff with Union City Police on Sunday. 

Diamond Edwards is accused of assault with a deadly weapon and inflicting corporal injury after police say she hit her alleged boyfriend with a lead pipe in the head. 

Police were dispatched to the 24000 block of Alvarado Niles Road around 1:50 a.m. and found a 28-year-old man “bleeding profusely from numerous lacerations and puncture wounds.”

He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The victim claimed Edwards as the assailant and said she was his girlfriend. 

Police arrived at her residence around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, but she refused to leave. The Union City Police Department SWAT Team surrounded her house for six hours before Edwards surrounded and was taken into custody.
