Man arrested after Aberdeen roof stand-off

Friday May 19th 2017 at 2:43 PM

A 21-year-old man has been arrested after a five hour stand-off with police in Aberdeen.

Officers were rushed to Dee Street at around 11:20am today, after reports of concern for a man on the roof of a bakery.

He has now been arrested on an outstanding warrant, and is expected in court on Monday.

Inspector Ian McKinnon said: “This was an isolated incident involving one man and at no time was there any risk to the wider public.

“We would like to thank the community for their patience while the incident was dealt with.”

Police closed Dee Street and Langstane Place to deal with the incident.

The roads have since reopened.
