Local reports say officers were first called to a welfare check at a house on Earlsdon Avenue North in the early hours of Sunday morning. A 41-year-old man has refused to leave the property since.
In an update last night, West Midlands police said that a cordon remains in place on the street as officers continue to talk to the occupant.
The man is “believed to be armed with weapons” and has his son with him, the force said.
It added: “Our priority is the safety of those involved which includes residents who live within the cordon’s perimeter.”
