Arrest made after Worksop 'stand off' saw woman lock herself in house with knife
A woman was arrested for a catalogue of offences after a ‘stand off’ in Worksop saw her lock herself in a house with a knife.
Nottinghamshire Police officers were called to Oxford Road, Carlton-in-Lindrick shortly after 4.15pm yesterday (March 15) responding to concerns for a woman’s safety.
When police arrived the woman was inside the address and was refusing to unlock the door.
She was holding a knife as specially-trained officers engaged with her.
Following their negotiations with the woman the incident was brought to a safe conclusion by 5.05pm.
A 55-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of affray, criminal damage, making threats to kill and racially-aggravated public order. She remains in custody.
Inspector Sue Wain, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a contained incident with no threat to the wider public and following careful negotiations with the woman we were able to bring the incident to a safe conclusion.
“I would like to thank people in the area for their patience.”
