A 34-year-old man remains in custody this afternoon (Friday) following an incident at Longton police station late last night.
The man was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and being in possession of an offensive weapon.
A window was damaged with a metal bar during the incident at the Sutherland Road station, which happened just after 10pm.
Chief Inspector Karen Stevenson, commander of Stoke South Local Policing Team (LPT), said: “Such criminality will not be tolerated and the man was quite rightly quickly arrested.
“This matter is now under investigation.”
