Const. Brian Montague says police and mental health experts negotiated with the 53-year-old man for several hours before officers forced themselves into his fifth-floor residence and arrested him.
Montague says police arrived at the hotel at about 4:30 a.m., after a woman was punched in the face, but the man refused to open his door.
He says police obtained a warrant to enter the suspect's room but continued to negotiate with him.
Montague says police were concerned that the man's deteriorating mental health would continue to pose a danger to the public.
He says the suspect has a lengthy criminal history and has previously committed unprovoked and random attacks.
