A man was arrested after he threatened a Police Officer using an iron rod in Valletta.

The 33-year-old Nigerian was allegedly drunk in Valletta and escaped when Police Officers approached him.  He immediately entered a construction site, grabbed an iron rod and started to threaten the Police.  One of the Officers was injured whilst the arrest was taking place.

The accused pleaded not guilty but was not freed since he does not have a permanent address and currently lives in a construction site.
