Police have been negotiating with a man with a large power tool in a Plymouth home for more than 12 hours.

Police were called at 9:28 a.m. Saturday morning on Ham Drive following reports of threats by a resident. Armed officers went to the address, where they are currently in talks with the man. No other occupants were reportedly present, and no injuries were reported.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesperson said early Saturday afternoon: “At 9:28 am, police were called to a property on Ham Drive in Plymouth following an incident during from which emergency services personnel were threatened by a man with a large power tool. “

The force issued a subsequent statement confirming that negotiations were under way and that threats had been made by a resident with a power tool.

“Armed officers attended the address on Ham Drive in Plymouth where they are currently in talks with the resident,” a spokesman said on Saturday.

Residents reportedly said that the police had told them to stay inside their homes and that local buses had been rerouted as the police established a cordon on the street, one section of which was closed. Paramedics and firefighters were also photographed at the scene.
