Gladstone man walks into police station, cop pulls gun
A 38-year-old West Gladstone man has been charged after allegedly entering the Gladstone police station this morning armed with a knife and making threats.
It will be alleged about 10.45am a man who had been sitting in the foyer of the station was asked by officers if he required assistance.
The man then allegedly approached the counter, pulled out a large knife and began threatening staff.
A female officer pulled out her firearm and the man surrendered to police without further incident.
A search was then carried out on a vehicle parked outside of the building with specialist police called in to assist before being declared safe.
A man has been charged with going armed as to cause fear and will appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court tomorrow.
No one was injured as a result of the incident.
