Armed police were called to Helston early on Sunday evening after reports of a man threatening a neighbour with a sword

Local officers were called just before 5pm to Kingsley Way, where a 50-year-old man had allegedly been threatened.

The issue was resolved by 6.30pm when a 45-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of affray.

He was taken into police custody where he remained yesterday evening.

A police spokesman said: “No one was hurt during the incident and no weapons were used.”
