The Armed Offenders Squad has arrested a man who was allegedly armed at Paparoa in Northland early this morning.

A police spokeswoman said a woman reported the man to authorities after he arrived at her house allegedly carrying a weapon about 6am.

The spokeswoman said the man then left the house and officers, including the Armed Offenders Squad, were deployed to the neighbourhood.

A 36-year-old man was arrested when he arrived at a cordoned area in a vehicle.

The man was known to the woman whose house he visited, police said.
