A man has died in police custody following a confrontation with police in Melbourne.
Police arrived at a house on Boldrewood Parade in Reservoir following reports of a man threatening a woman and damaging property on Saturday morning.
The 30-year-old confronted them in an erratic and aggressive manner and refused to engage, Victoria Police said.
The area was blocked off while specialist members of the Critical Incident Response Team negotiated with him and he was eventually arrested.
A Melbourne man in his 30s suddenly became unconscious while being treated by paramedics following a negotiation with police.
The man was to be taken to hospital to be assessed, but he suddenly became unconscious while being treated by paramedics and died.
The homicide squad will prepare a report for the coroner and the investigation will be overseen by the force’s professional standards command, which it says is standard procedure after a death in custody.
The woman inside the home was not injured.
