The Armed Offenders Squad (AOS) surrounded a house in Barry Road this morning at around 6 am and arrested a 37 year old man soon after.

Neighbours heard a commotion and said the man was called out of the property by the AOS who were using a loud hailer.

Unconfirmed reports said the man responded to the request and gave himself up at around 6.30 am.

The man was taken into custody and at this stage the police are not releasing details about why the man was arrested, except to say that serious threats were made.
