AAP logoAAP 15/09/2016

A man who allegedly threatened former workmates with a large knife during a 10-hour siege in Brisbane's west will spend at least the next month in custody.

Lucky John King, 46, appeared in the Richlands Magistrates Court on Friday morning, a day after he was arrested at the food processing plant where he used to work in Wacol.

Police allege King entered the plant armed with a knife about 10pm on Wednesday and made threats to staff before barricading himself inside.

Police evacuated the plant and began negotiations, but the stand-off only came to an end about 8.30am the next morning when officers moved into the building.

King has been charged with 19 offences, including six counts of common assault and four counts of making threats.

He made no application for bail during his court appearance and was remanded in custody to appear in the same court on October 13.
