Qld: Siege man surrenders to police, devices found in hotel room

A 43-year-old man has surrendered to police after a 16-hour siege at a Gold Coast hotel.

Police say initial fears the man had hostages were false.

Police were also concerned he was armed with explosives, and devices found in the 12th
floor hotel room are now being fully examined.

Earlier, police raided the man's nearby Coombabah home and destroyed explosive chemicals
found there.

Detective Inspector JOHN HARTWELL says during the siege the man made no specific demands
except to ask for coffee, and the motive for the incident remains a mystery.

The alarm was first raised about 6pm (AEST) yesterday when the man allegedly attempted
to lure a babysitter to his room and hit her with a piece of wood.

She fled the room and called police. A second woman was also called to the room but
police stopped her from entering.

The man's expected to face court in the next few days but police are not yet able to
detail specific charges.
