Brisbane was brought to a standstill after a crazed man allegedly stormed a cafe to steal two knives and threaten staff before climbing on top of a tunnel where he held police at bay for eight hours. He fled the building with the two massive blades in hand but later returned to the cafe and threatened a customer and the staff. The three young girls who were working at the time have been left shaken after the ordeal. One of the girls told Daily Mail Australia the man was ' extremely aggressive'.
A knife-wielding man standing on the roof of one of Brisbane 's busiest tunnels brought peak-hour traffic to a halt on Thursday. The tense stand off with police disrupted traffic in both directions at the Clem Jones Tunnel at Shafston Avenue just before 7am on Thursday.
The tense stand-off lasted about eight hours. At one point the armed man allegedly attempted to leave the structure and charged at three police officers. The knife-wielding man was eventually arrested by police officers and was taken to hospital for assessment.
Police were then called to the scene, where they blocked off traffic in both directions of the busy tunnel. He was removed from the structure by the Special Emergency Response Team and was taken into custody before being transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for further assessment.
He has since been charged with three counts of serious assault police while armed and common assault, two counts of enter premises and commit indictable offence, and one count each of going armed so as to cause fear, unregulated high-risk activities, stealing, possession of a knife and public nuisance. Officers were called to the scene after the man climbed onto a structure at the northbound entrance. Traffic piled up during peak-hour following the incident at the Clem 7 tunnel.
