A team of police officers cordoned off Cipriani Boulevard and Picton Streets, which remained closed until sometime after 7am as they searched the building and surrounding areas for the suspect.

Police used tear-gas as well in the search.

The man was arrested just after nine this morning and is currently in police custody.
