man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after staff at a petrol station were forced to hide from a knifeman in a safe room.
Police were on the scene within five minutes and after two hours of negotiations, a man in his 50s was arrested.
“These were minimal force options and presented the least risk to the public, the suspect and officers in bringing the situation to a safe conclusion.
“A man in his 50s is currently at a police custody unit having been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and will be assessed by health professionals.”
Members of staff at the forecourt, which had a Morrisons Daily shop inside, were uninjured after remaining in a safe room and in contact with police throughout.
A man in his 20s was being treated for non-life threatening knife wounds after leaving the scene and taking himself to hospital.
