An array of offensive weapons were seized following the deployment of armed officers to a disturbance in Stoke-on-Trent last night (2 October).
We were called to an address on Yeaman Street at around 9.20pm after receiving reports of a man being threatened with an axe.
The victim was quickly located in the street and was safely removed from the scene. He was unharmed during the incident.
A 43-year-old man from Stoke-on-Trent was arrested on suspicion of affray after surrendering to officers. A hatchet axe, crossbow and a bag of assorted knives were recovered from the property. The offender remains in police custody at this time.
