Polair helicopter had been tracking the man for much of the morning and directed the Regional Duty Officer, District Duty Officer, dog squad, CIB and ground crews to the three storey walk up about 8.30am.

Police negotiators were speaking with the man through a unit door before he surrendered peacefully at about 9.20am.
