A man has been arrested following an armed police call out in Papanui.

The surburb was swarming with armed police officers in a number of streets.

A police spokeswoman said cordons have now been stood down and a 26-year-old man has been taken into custody.

He is facing serious assault/family harm charges.

Earlier police were standing outside a residential address on Winters Road.

A resident who lives on the street said police officers were at the same address on Wednesday.
