69 year old local man arrested after allegedly threatening someone with what RGP called a homemade 'axe-like' weapon

A 69 year old local man has been arrested after allegedly threatening someone with what the Royal Gibraltar Police called a homemade "axe-like" weapon.

The arrest took place at the man's home at Varyl Begg Estate Thursday morning, with Armed Response officers, the K-9 Section and a number of uniformed officers attending the scene. A police investigation is now underway.

Footage of the incident has been circulated on social media. GBC has blurred the footage so that the man, who has not been charged, cannot be identified.
