Dangerous conduct with a weapon, Sunshine Beach


myPolice on Jul 24, 2020 @ 10:12am

A man has been arrested at Sunshine Beach this morning after allegedly confronting police with a replica weapon.

Officers attended an address on Park Crescent to conduct a welfare check at around 12.45am.

It will be alleged that as police entered the unit, a man presented what appeared to be a semi-automatic rifle and pointed it at the two officers.

Police retreated out of the residence and commenced negotiations with the man before calling for further assistance.

It is further alleged that a short time later the man opened the front door and pushed the barrel of the weapon through the opening.

A male senior constable immediately pushed the man back through the door, forcing him to drop the firearm.

Officers then successfully deployed a taser, and as they went to restrain the man he allegedly slashed the male senior constable on the hand with a knife.

His partner, a female senior constable, successfully disarmed the man and he was taken into custody.

A further search of the unit uncovered a second lookalike rifle, determined to be a replica, and two knifes were seized.

A 44-year-old Sunshine Beach man was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital for further assessment and is currently assisting police with inquiries.

The 43-year-old male senior constable was also transported to hospital for treatment to a wound on his hand.

Investigations are continuing.
