Gold Coast man charged with domestic violence offences after emergency declaration

A Gold Coast man, believed to have a firearm and who triggered a school lockdown and made threats against police, has been charged.

The 37-year-old suffered a dog bite to his forearm on Wednesday afternoon when police arrested him after a search that lasted more than 24 hours.

Police are searching for the man in an exclusion zone in Ormeau on the Gold Coast on Tuesday.

Police wanted to question the man over an incident in Upper Coomera on Monday.

However, police began searching an area in Ormeau, causing an emergency declaration to be made for five hours, and forcing the Ormeau State School into lockdown for five hours on Tuesday.

Gold Coast police stations remained open on Wednesday despite threats allegedly made by the man who triggered a school lockdown on Tuesday.

Acting Inspector Kevin Gant said specialist officers were involved in the arrest where an emergency declaration was made just after 4pm for about 20 minutes at Baloo Street in Nerang.

“Today, as a result of our inquiries, we’ve identified a possible location where that male could have been,” he said.

“As a result of that a declaration was made under the public safety preservation act for the immediate area. A short time later that male was located and taken into custody.

“The 37-year-old did sustain a minor dog bite, and he is being treated for his injuries.”
