At approximately 12.30pm today, Tuesday, North Wales Police responded to reports of a man causing a disturbance and damage inside a house in Gwynant on the Plas Madoc Estate, in Acrefair.
The man, who was believed to be alone in the premises, threatened attending police officers who also saw he was carrying knifes.
Local police officers supported by dog handlers and other specialist police officers "contained" the address with the intention of protecting the public then safely disarming and arresting the man.
The man refused officers' requests for him to leave and a specialist negotiator attempted contact with a view to resolve the matter peacefully and return the area to normality.
At about 2.45pm police successfully concluded the operation and say that a 49-year-old local male gave himself up to officers.
He has been arrested for affray and has been taken to a local police station.
Inspector Kevin Steel said: “Highly trained resources were quickly deployed to the scene and our objective of protecting the public has been achieved.
"We our grateful to local residents for their understanding and cooperation and I’m happy to say the area can return to normality.”
