Police arrest man after argument

A heavy police presence was involved in the arrest of a man yesterday.

A police spokesman confirmed officers were called to an incident in St John's Road in Pembroke.

The spokesman added: “As a result, one man was arrested and detained in police custody.

“A court appearance is anticipated.”

Photographs and video of the arrest showed several officers restraining a man near the junction with Langton Hill.

A witness said the suspect had been involved in an argument with other people just before police arrived.

Several police officers were also involved in an incident near the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo in Flatts a short time before. The spokesman said that two people were detained and searched after a traffic stop on North Shore Road at about 10.45am.

He added that inquiries into the incident were continuing.
