A teenage boy was injured and a man was arrested following a police stand-off at a North Staffordshire home.
Emergency services were called to a property in Hereford Avenue, Clayton, shortly after 5pm yesterday afternoon to reports of a man in distress.
Police had attended to make an arrest, but the man locked himself inside and refused to leave.
Following more than four hours of negotiation, a 40-year-old man was taken into custody on suspicion of affray.
Shortly after arriving, the paramedics in attendance treated a teenage boy for minor injuries before he was discharged. They also checked over the man arrested before he was left in the hands of the police.
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “We attended a property in Hereford Avenue, Newcastle, at around 5pm yesterday (August 11) to make an arrest.
“A man, aged 40, refused to leave the property, locking himself in, but following negotiation was arrested on suspicion of affray.”
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a distressed man at a property in Hereford Avenue, Newcastle, at just after 5.35pm on Tuesday afternoon.
