A 49 year-old man was due to appear at Hornsby Court today after a domestic violence incident turned into a siege on Sunday afternoon.

Police were called to the house in San Remo Drive around 4pm following a report of an incident involving domestic violence. When they arrived the male resident barricaded himself into the house and police determined it a siege, calling in the Tactical Operations Unit.

The siege was “peacefully resolved” around 10.30 pm after the male resident surrendered to police negotiators.
The man has been charged with malicious damage, intimidation, armed with intent to commit an assault and resisting arrest. He was refused bail and was due before the court today.
