A man in his 30s has been detained in Haverhill after police spent nearly four hours at an address in the town.
Officers were first at the scene in Pleasant Close, near Cambridge Way, at about 11.26am on Thursday March 12 to execute a warrant for arrest.
At least six police cars arrived at the scene and blocked the road with vehicles when they entered the property.
However, the man police sought to arrest refused to leave the property.
After more than four hours of negotiation, at about 3.15pm, police detained the man, who is aged in his 30s.
