String of DV charges laid after two-day manhunt on the Gold Coast

The man who sparked an emergency declaration on the Gold Coast and evaded police for days has now been charged.

The 37-year-old has been on the run since an alleged domestic violence incident on Monday night.

Parts of Ormeau were locked down on Tuesday before social media threats were allegedly made to police on Wednesday.


The man was eventually arrested in Nerang late yesterday after police made a second emergency declaration under the Public Safety and Preservation Act.

He had to be hospitalised under police guard after being bitten on the arm by a police dog during the arrest.
