AOS call out to Mataura
The Southland Armed Offenders Squad was called out to a property near Mataura this morning.
Southern District Police deployment coordinator Senior Sergeant Brian Benn said Southland police were alerted to a potentially serious family violence incident at 7.30am.
The area around a farm house 7km west of Mataura was cordoned off until the squad arrived and cleared the area at 10.30am.
A 24-year-old man was now in custody and would be charged with making threats toward a woman who lived at the same address, he said.
No one was injured and the cordons had been lifted, he said.
