A man has been arrested after armed police were called to an incident at a block of flats in Woodbridge.

Officers were called just after 1.45pm this afternoon to reports that a man was causing damage and making threats to another man at a block of flats in Cobbold Road.

On arrival the man began to make threats towards officers, threw items out of a window and threatened to harm himself.

Armed police and negotiators were amongst a number of units to respond to the incident, which was safely resolved just after 6.15pm when officers entered the flat and detained the individual concerned.

A man aged in his 30s was subsequently arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill and he has been taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
