Wild Video: UK Police Take Down Knife-Wielding Suspect Shouting 'Allah'

A man wielding a knife and yelling Islamic slogans was neutralized by police during a standoff in a neighborhood in England this week, according to reports.

The disturbing incident unfolded at around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening in Birmingham.

Authorities were alerted about a man who was slashing trees with a large blade and intimidating people in the Alum Rock neighborhood, the Birmingham Mail reports.

The suspect went inside a residence before climbing out onto the roof and confronting officers on the ground.

Multiple videos of the chaotic scene were shared on social media.

The man can be seen waving the knife in the air while shouting "Allah."

He jumps down to the ground, ignoring officers' orders to drop the weapon.

The suspect was eventually tasered and disarmed.

"A man was sectioned under the Mental Health Act following reports of him acting erratically and being armed with a knife in a Birmingham street last night (16 Aug)," a West Midlands police spokesperson said.

"He was tasered at the scene and detained before being taken to a secure hospital facility for an assessment and treatment."

An investigation is ongoing.
