'HIGH-PITCHED SCREAM': Police shoot, charge man at Brisbane Airport

Brisbane airport evacuated due to ‘bomb threat’

He then allegedly placed a metal object on a table, claiming it was a bomb, and began chasing the woman.

Services on the airport train line were also shut down.

The man was later shot by police and arrested on Saturday night.

"This is to reinforce the message that police do not take a decision to shut an worldwide airport down lightly and to show exactly what our officers were confronted with when they arrived".

Meanwhile a woman said when she asked what was going on, she was told by an officer the Surfers Paradise situation "was connected to what was going on in Brisbane" and allegedly told her to "connect the dots", according to the Courier Mail. There are reports of a man being armed with knives, and authorities have declared a bomb threat, according to 9news.

At around 9pm, police were called to the global terminal following reports of a man in the food court, armed with a knife who was threatening a woman who is known to him.

He is due to appear before the Brisbane Magistrate's Court on Monday. "I have absolutely no doubt that was a terrifying experience for members of the public that saw that", Stewart said.

When an officer was asked if the local incident could be related to the earlier Brisbane situation, they reportedly told the Gold Coast Bulletin: "It seems to be a very similar incident".

An internal Queensland police "debrief" will occur in the wake of the incident as well as a debrief with the airport and other partner agencies to determine what, if anything, could be done better in future.

"The words that had been used by the alleged offender in this matter, his behaviour and the statements that he's made caused us to need to look at a number of vehicles and residences to ensure there were no IED (improvised explosive devices) or anything of concern", Assistant Commissioner Crawford said.
