June 17, 2009 02:53pm
A SIEGE is underway in Frankston North with a possibly armed man holding police at bay in a suburban street.
The Herald Sun reports police cars have surrounded the home along the Frankston-Dandenong Rd, as members of the heavily-armed critical incident response team also take up positions.
Police spokeswoman Julianne Newman said the man had been holed up on his own in the house since about 11.30am.
She said no surrounding homes had been evacuated.
“We don’t feel there is any threat to them at this stage.”
