“I had just got out the shower. I heard shouting so I looked out the window and saw five police cars and a van.
“The next thing we know there are officers with guns and shields,” he said.
“It was worrying to see, like something out of a film.”
A police spokesperson confirmed paramedics called the armed officers after the man refused hospital treatment.
Eight police cars – including three riot vans – one ambulance and two ambulance cars blocked the road for an hour-and-a-half between Second Avenue and Chelmsford Avenue junctions.
He was taken to the Diana Princess Of Wales Hospital for treatment.
