SAN ANTONIO — A six-hour standoff at a northside townhouse complex ended peacefully Friday morning.

David Marbury, 50, was taken into custody and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

His wife told police that Marbury held her at knife-point for several hours, then cut her face and arm. When she managed to run out of the home, Marbury is accused of firing a gunshot in her direction.

San Antonio Police responded to the gated complex in the 1900 block of Larkspur Drive just before 1:30 a.m.

Officers found the woman hiding behind a moving truck. She was treated at the scene for several cuts.

When police tried to speak with Marbury, he would not answer the door. SWAT officers were brought in and continued trying to contact Marbury for six hours. He surrendered at 7:30 a.m.

Court records show Marbury was in jail less than 24 hours prior to the standoff. He was arrested early Thursday morning for a charge of Continuous Violence against Family. He posted a $10,000 bond and was released at 9:11 a.m.
