The moment a naked knife wielding Canadian serenaded SWAT team police officers with a banjo has been caught on camera.
Police were called to the Vancouver neighbourhood after the suspect was allegedly seen running around with a knife. When they arrived at the man’s home, he barricaded himself inside for two hours, KPTV reports.
Witnesses told local media the naked banjoist, Andrew Helmsworth, was yelling at officers. Suddenly, he walked outside with a banjo and played an impromptu show for officers.

Neighbour Melissa Munday told KPTV: "he came out to the front door. We heard - sounded like a guitar, a banjo."
"He didn't want to come any farther,' Munday told KPTV. "He started backing up and they shot him with like a rubber bullet or something."
