MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A man armed with a knife has barricaded himself inside a Miami Beach apartment and refuses to come out, police said.

Miami Beach police said a woman went to a hospital Friday morning with at least one cut to her body, telling staff there that she was hurt by a man at the Harding Avenue apartment building.

When officers arrived, the man entered his apartment and refused to come out.

"He beat the crap out of his girlfriend," a resident of the apartment building told Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton.

The SWAT team was called as police try to coax the man out.
