Man detained after threatening to kill police officers in Kingsbury
Welsh Harp Neighbourhood Team was called to his address this morning
A knife-wielding man who threatened to kill police officers who had visited his home has been detained under the Mental Health Act.
Officers from Welsh Harp Safer Neighbourhoods Team attended the address in Wells Drive, Kingsbury, this morning (Thursday) following reports from concerned neighbours about the resident’s ‘erratic’ behaviour.
The man, who was brandishing a knife, locked himself and a woman in his bedroom and threatened to kill the officers.
He was arrested for threats to kill after officers forced their way into the room.
Brent Social Services Mental Health Team examined the man and he was detained and sent to a local Mental Health unit for assessment and treatment.
No officers were hurt during the incident.

Sergeant John Lawrence from Welsh Harp Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “His conduct was such that residents were afraid to walk in their own street for fear of being attacked or abused.
“It was clear that this individual needed medical treatment and I am please to say that this is now taking place without any harm being caused to anybody.”
