Hamilton siege ends peacefully

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 5/08/2016

A man has been arrested after an 11-hour stand-off with armed police ended peacefully in Hamilton.

Police say they went to a house in the suburb of Glenview to arrest the man for "serious" offences at 10am on Friday, but retreated to call for armed backup after an "exchange" occurred.

Shortly before 11pm police entered the house and made the arrest.

"A female, who was also at the property with the man, has also been removed safely and is speaking with staff," police said in a statement.

The man will appear in Hamilton District Court on Saturday.
