Police negotiators spent two hours talking a man, 24, out of injuring himself in a stand-off at his Mongkok home.

The man, armed with a chopper and two knives, had called his girlfriend, 19, saying he would jump from the roof of Tai Chung Building in Ivy Street if she did not turn up. Police said the couple had earlier argued about their relationship.
