This was the scene on a York street this evening (Wednesday).
Police descended on Townend Street in numbers at about 6.15pm.
They tackled a man to the ground and detained him.
A witness told YorkMix: “There were four police vans and a car.
“The officers all piled onto a guy. They put him in back of van and he was kicking the inside of it.
“This all happened in families of people relaxing in their gardens. It was quite a shocking few minutes.”
We have contacted with North Yorkshire Police and are waiting to hear back with more details.
