Brisbane man surrenders to police after standoff

A BRISBANE man has surrendered to police after a 12-hour stand off at a Cleveland home this morning.

Police declared an emergency situation after the 42-year-old called in a bomb threat to emergency services just after 2pm on Tuesday afternoon.

After 12 hours of negotiation the man finally surrendered to police.


“It’s very pleasing to say that the negotiators have successfully got the male to come to enter police custody and to resolve the matter without confrontation,” Inspector Joe Jaramazovic said.

This is the third emergency situation declared by Queensland Police since Saturday.
