“All of a sudden, I look up and there are two cops on the bike path, looking around and looking in the bushes. I thought something’s going on.
“A couple of hundred metres down the path, police cars had pulled over near the highway [Gateway Motorway], and another 100 metres on, there were six cops escorting this man towards their cars.
“I kept riding past, then I turned around, came back and the police must have let him [the man] go because he was past where the police cars were and walking away.
“Nothing like a few uniformed detectives to make your Sunday more interesting.”
A police spokeswoman confirmed a triple-zero call was made by a cyclist about 10.30am on Sunday reporting someone armed on the bike path.
Mr Sartor said he was not the cyclist who called police.
The police spokeswoman said officers conducted a 45-minute search near Queens Road in Nudgee, but concluded the man the cyclist had seen was a pedestrian carrying an umbrella.
