The drama happened yesterday teatime – less than half-a-mile from the scene of a shooting on Saturday.
Police are thought to have made the arrest on behalf of West Yorkshire’s homicide and major enquiry team, who are investigating the weekend shooting.
But their actions were criticised by a man who claimed to be the brother of the man detained in Dewhurst Road yesterday.
He said: “The black community are fed up of being harassed. Black kids are getting stopped in the street all the time.
“Obviously something has happened with the incident on Saturday, but there is no need for all of this. The police are over-reacting”.
The teatime drama followed news earlier in the day that three more men had been arrested by detectives probing a shooting in Fartown.
Those arrests yesterday brought to 10 the number of people who have been detained since the incident on Saturday.
The men aged 22, 33 and 28 are all from the Huddersfield area and were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and possession of a firearm. They were all in custody last night but subsequently bailed.
All were held in connection with the shooting which happened at 3.41pm on Saturday in Bradford Road and left four men with injuries, including gunshot wounds. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
The seven men arrested in previous raids have all also been bailed.
Investigations by police into the incident remain ongoing.
The scene of the shooting at the Slick Cutz barber’s shop had been sealed off by police until yesterday morning.
A window at the shop was replaced yesterday.
Last night officers were gathering forensic evidence inside the shop, working under powerful lighting.
The stand-off in Dewhurst Road began about 5pm when police officers stopped a 26-year-old Bradley man who was driving a metallic blue Vauxhall Corsa.
He was made to lie in the centre of the road with armed officers in bulletproof vests covering him with guns.
Police cars sealed off both ends of the road.
The police also brought in a video van and a dog unit.
The Corsa car was loaded on to a trailer and taken away before the road re-opened at 6.15pm.
One shocked resident said: “The armed officers made the man lie down in the road face-down and had their guns pointed at him.
“He was then put in the back of a police van and they took him away.”
