One man is in custody and another is being questioned by police after a standoff early this morning in east Houston.

It all started around 4am at a home on Avenue P at Wayside. Officers say Israel Sanchez was armed with a hammer when he assaulted and choked the woman he lives with and her friend.

The women managed to get out of the house, and another man also came out. After a few hours, Sanchez finally came out, but when he didn't obey SWAT commands to show his hands, officers used bean bags to subdue him.

Right now, only Sanchez faces charges. Officers say as the investigation continues, more charges could be filed.
