An elderly woman is undergoing a mental evaluation after a SWAT standoff yesterday afternoon.

Houston police officers were called to a home on Southgood near Crestmont for an assault call. A 71-year-old woman was accused of attacking another woman and her dog with a hammer. She also allegedly broke car windows.

After several hours of unsuccessful negotiations, SWAT officers entered the woman's home through a window and arrested her.
