Officers from Greater Manchester police have arrested a suspect after reports of a man with a knife at the Arndale shopping centre.
Footage on social media appeared to show a large police and ambulance service presence outside the Manchester shopping centre, which closed at 8pm on Friday according to its website.
A GMP statement said: “Police remain in attendance at Manchester Arndale centre following reports of a man with a knife.
“Officers attended and a man has been arrested. He has been taken into custody for questioning. There are no reported injuries.
“There is not believed to be any wider threat to the community. Police are remaining in the area to reassure the public.”
A North West ambulance service spokeswoman said: “We were in attendance but there are no patients, there are no casualties so there is no more information at this time.”
The incident comes after four people were hurt after a man armed with a large knife lunged at shoppers on Friday last week.
