Police in Manchester were bombarded by a man throwing "missiles" at them on Tuesday night.
Officers were called to an address on Greatfield Road in Poundswick, Wythenshawe, Manchester, after receiving reports of a disturbance.
They were confronted by a 36-year-old man wielding a Samurai sword and throwing household objects at police.
The man, who was arrested on Wednesday, ran into a flat and used a blowpipe to blow darts at officers from a balcony.
The man was also armed with a number of knives.
Armed officers were called to assist and police successfully negotiated with the man.
The situation ended peacefully and no-one was injured.
