A man police say was armed with an ax was arrested following a tense standoff on the South Coast.

A man called Oxnard Police Sunday afternoon saying when he went into his parked RV, he discovered someone with a knife inside.  Arriving officers say they saw a man armed with an ax outside of the vehicle.  The man quickly went back inside.

The SWAT team was called, as were a crisis team.  After about two hours of unsuccessful efforts to get the man to come out, they used tear gas.
