A man has been arrested after a tense standoff with police in the New South Wales Hunter region.

The 27-year-old man allegedly confronted officers on the front yard of a Muswellbrook home on Tuesday night.

He was allegedly holding a pair of scissors in one hand and an 11-month-old girl in the other.

Police repeatedly told the man to put the baby down but he allegedly refused.

When he momentarily let the little girl go, police deployed a Taser and arrested him.
