Issued on 13/3/19 at 8:08 p.m.

At around 4.30pm this afternoon (Wednesday 13 March) police were called by East Midlands Ambulance Service reporting concern for the welfare of a man inside an address in the city centre.

Officers attended the flat in Vestry House, where a man, in his 40s, had barricaded himself inside.

With the assistance of the fire service, officers were able to enter the property where they found the sole occupant of the address with injuries to his hands and neck.

The man was taken to the Leicester Royal Infirmary for treatment.

Humberstone Gate at the junctions of Charles Street and Wharf Street North was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident – the closure has since been lifted.

Officers would like to thank the public for their patience while the incident was ongoing.
