UPDATE: Police are searching for a man wanted over a domestic-related stabbing at St Albans this morning.

Officers surrounded a property amid fears the man had barricaded himself in a house on Grant Street.

The Special Operations Group stormed the property this afternoon, but failed to find any sign of him.

Police are now investigating other leads in the hope of tracking down the alleged offender.

EARLIER: A siege has locked down residential streets in St Albans as police try to negotiate with a man inside a house.

Heavily-armed police are at a house in Grant Street negotiating with the man, with several streets in the area cordoned off.

It is unclear if he is armed or has anybody else inside the house with him.
