Nearly didn't have a Christmas church service

from w
On Christmas morning there was a strange incident up in our church car park up Boundary Rd. About 5.30 a.m. a man was causing trouble in a house opposite the church car park so several police cars, fire trucks, a tactical response unit, all congregated on the road and in the car park and blocked off all traffic at the corner. Our minister had gone up to the church to set up for the Christmas lunch and couldn't even drive into the car park. He wondered then if 'church' was off for Christmas Day!  Anyway an hour later the problem was kind of resolved. A man with some kind of mental issues was taken for assessment. Isa, our city has many people with various disabilities and we don't have to criticize them but somehow have to help them.

from the Geelong media::

In Newcomb, a man was taken for assessment to Geelong Hospital's Swanston Centre on Christmas Day and interviewed by police, before being released on bail.
It is believed the man barricaded himself in his house on Christmas morning. A police critical incident response team attended the scene.
Detective Sen-Constable Brett Hampson said the man would appear in the Geelong Magistrates' Court in March
