A man aged 33 was arrested by Local Police in Manacor after he held an officer hostage at knifepoint. Two police officers answered a call to settle a family quarrel in Portocristo, where two brothers were involved in an argument. One of the brothers grabbed one of the officers and held a butcher's knife with a 25 cm blade to his neck. The other officer, a woman, drew her pistol and began to negotiate with the man, at the same time calling for reinforcements. The aggressor was eventually subdued and arrested. He was taken away in handcuffs. His brother, who had not taken part in the incident with the officers, was questioned but not detained.
