Man arrested after 5-hour stand off with police at house

A 36-year-old man was arrested after more than a five-hour stand-off with police.

Nottinghamshire Police officers were called to Elder Street in Skegby, near Sutton-in-Ashfield, just after 2pm on Monday, November 16 responding to concerns for a man’s safety.

When police arrived the man was inside his house and reportedly refused to leave his address.

Specialist units from Nottinghamshire Police were sent to the scene and engaged with the man.

After around five-and-a-half hours of negotiations the incident was brought to a safe conclusion and a man was arrested inside the property, at around 7.30pm, on suspicion of affray, assault by beating of an emergency worker and public order offences.

He remains in custody.

Inspector Georgie Ball, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a contained incident with no threat to the wider public and following extensive negotiations with the man we were able to  bring the incident to a safe conclusion.

“I would like to thank people in the area for their patience as we worked to resolve the incident.”
