Armed siege in ALMO tower block ends in arrest
A man has been arrested following an armed siege at an arms-length management run tower block.
The man, in his 50s, was arrested for firearms offences and criminal damage just after 6.30pm yesterday after officers from Barnet Police entered the flat in Granville Point, Granville Road, Cricklewood.
No shots were fired and no residents were reported hurt after police were first alerted to the incident at the Barnet Homes run block just before midday on Tuesday.
Residents of the block were evacuated and an emergency rest centre was set up at a nearby school after police cordoned off the area. They have now been allowed back in their homes.
The man was taken to hospital where he was treated for cuts to his chest and arms.
