A man is in custody after a siege that locked down part of a western Sydney street for hours on Thursday.
The man, armed with a knife, had been holed up with a woman inside the house on Denison Street, Carramar, since about 1pm.
A police spokeswoman said he was removed shortly before 10pm and was assisting police.
The woman had also left the house and was uninjured, the spokeswoman said.
At one stage the man could be heard yelling: “I’m not coming out, I’m not going back to jail”.
Heavily armed police earlier flooded the area and the street was locked down for at least eight hours.
Some officers were carrying what appeared to be circular saws.
