A wanted man has been arrested by West Midlands Police following a five-hour rooftop standoff during which officers were pelted with tiles.
 
Akim Nicholson was spotted by officers in Streetly Road, Erdington, at around 7pm last night (Feb 24) driving a suspected stolen Audi.
 
The vehicle collided with a police patrol car before being abandoned in nearby Scafell Drive.
 
It’s alleged Nicholson then scaled bungalows in the cul-de-sac and began hurling roof tiles at officers on the ground.
 
The 27-year-old – who was the subject of a wanted appeal issued last month by officers investigating a series of domestic related incidents and threats – surrendered to police just after midnight.
 
He has been arrested on suspicion of car theft, failing to stop at the scene of a collision, criminal damage to properties and assaulting police officers, in addition to the offences he was wanted over.
 
The road was cordoned off during the incident; no police officers were injured.
