Street in lockdown as police negotiate with man at Noble Park house in Adelaide

A man is in police custody after officers used non-lethal weapons including bean bags and a taser during a suburban rooftop siege.

After hours of sitting on the roof during police negotiations the 46-year-old man jumped the gap between his house and neighbour’s pergola – a distance of about 2m – and then ran across the roof as police fired bean-bags.

The bean-bag bullets struck his body but he continued to move across the tiles, jumping to a further two single-storey homes before officers fired a taser gun.
