Man With Knife Detained In Hellesdon
A man's been detained by armed police in the outskirts of Norwich after reports a man was acting aggressive with a knife.
Police were called to Rosalie Close in Hellesdon at 12:20pm yesterday (25th May). A member of the public raised concern for the welfare of a neighbour.
The man, in his 50s, was aggressive towards officers and was seen with a kitchen knife, resulting in armed units attending the scene. The ambulance service were also called to help.
Police forced entry to the property and the man was tasered and restrained, allowing paramedics to treat him. He was detained and taken to hospital for treatment.
Speaking after it happened, Detective Chief Inspector Ross McDermott said: "The man was very distressed and it became apparent to officers that he was in need of urgent medical treatment for self-inflicted injuries.
"He has been taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in a stable condition and I would like to reassure local residents that there was no threat to the wider community at any time during the incident."
