POLICE blocked off a large section of Gardiner Road near Hill Street at around 2pm yesterday after a man, who police were attempting to arrest, locked himself and his two young children in his house.
Initially police thought the man may have had a knife however upon forcing entry to the house police discovered he did not, nor did he make any threats throughout the ordeal.
Police wanted the man over a domestic issue and yesterday afternoon he was in police custody.
No one was injured during the incident.
At least five police crews attended the scene.
