Police mounted a search for a man with a samurai sword in Middlestown last night.

The police helicopter was scrambled at around 9.35pm following reports that someone was on the run with a samurai sword.

A man was later arrested for possession of an offensive weapon, after he was found to be carrying a knife, not a sword.

The man was not thought to have posed a danger to anyone.
