Two men have been arrested after one was seen making threats with a knife and another allegedly assaulted a police constable.
Crowds of bystanders witnessed the altercation, which took place on a busy shopping street in the jewellery quarter in Holborn, central London.
Police were called to Hatton Garden - near to the site of last April's jewellery raid - just before 2pm on Monday February 29.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Police were called to Hatton Garden to reports of a man with a knife, making threats.
"On arrival officers arrested one man on suspicion of being in possession of an offensive weapon and affray.
"A second man was arrested on suspicion of affray and assaulting a police constable."
No one was injured during the incident.
Both men remain in custody at a north London station.
