POLICE THREATENED WITH KNIFE ON A POLE AT MURWILLUMBAH

A 53-year-old man has been charged, after police were threatened with a knife in the state’s Northern Rivers.

Officers were called to Dorset Street at Murwillumbah just before midnight on Sunday, after being told a man was yelling and throwing items in the street.

It’s alleged as police approached the man they were threatened with a knife attached to the end of a pole.

The man was eventually arrested, and charged with intent to commit an indictable offence.

He was refused bail, and is expected to face Murwillumbah Local Court in September.
