Officers from Tweed Police were confronted by a 28-year-old man who allegedly threatened to kill members of his family in Banora Point on Wednesday.
According to the Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, officers went to the address after receiving a report that the man was breaching his Domestic Violence Order at the house.
‘On arrival Police were confronted by an aggressive 28-year-old male,’ the Command said in a statement.
‘After the accused was spoken to and a short confrontation, police were forced to spray the male accused with capsicum spray to affect his arrest.
‘The accused was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital for treatment and will be charged with multiple offences including, Breach AVO, Assault Police, and Resist Arrest.’
He was due to appear in court today.
Meanwhile, police are reminding those living in and around Banora Point not to leave valuables in their cars after a string of break-ins over the past few days.
Three separate incidents of theft from cars have occurred since October 27 on Old Ferry Road, Darlington Drive and Pioneer Parade, with thieves escaping with a range of valuables including cash, sunglasses and a GPS device.
The cars were locked in two of the three incidents.
