Police arrest man in CBD

A man has been arrested following an incident in the city this morning.

Just after 11am on Sunday 19 March police were called to a car park on Rundle Street after a man barricaded himself in an office armed with a box cutter.

Patrols, STAR Group officers and police negotiators attended the scene. Several tactical options were used to safely detain the man.

He has been taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for an assessment and is expected to be charged with property damage, two counts of assault police and carry offensive weapon.

The 33-year-old man of no fixed address is expected to be refused police bail and appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court tomorrow.

Police would like to thank the public for their patience as Rundle Street and the carpark were closed for a couple of hours.
