A man has been charged with assaulting a police officer and using threatening and abusive behaviour towards two police officers following an incident in Bungay.
The incident saw a firearms unit and roads policing officers called to Garden Close at around 2.40pm on Saturday.
It also saw a brief police chase of a BMW 520 car after it failed to stop on Trinity Street, eventually being located in Garden Close.
The driver was then helped to resist arrest by a teenage boy, leading to an officer being assaulted with one sustaining facial injuries.
Both people then ran into a house and a short time later the man came to the door with a knife and made threats to officers.
