The device that sparked police to shut down Brisbane Airport

Police an incident of domestic violence prompted the evacuation at Brisbane International Airport

According to officials of Queensland state police, they evacuated the terminal late Saturday after finding a "suspicious device" when they responded to reports of the 50-year-old man, who spoke Arabic, threatening a woman.

Services on the airport train line were also shut down.

The incident ended when police shot the man with non-lethal beanbag rounds, after which he surrendered to the officers.

He then chased the woman, a family member, while brandishing the knife, witnesses told Brisbane's The Sunday Mail.

Australian police said a man was in custody after an "emergency situation" that prompted the evacuation of the departure terminal of Brisbane Airport on Saturday night.

The incident reportedly took place in the airport's global terminal.

The worldwide terminal of Brisbane Airport was shut down and evacuated overnight, as police subdued a knife-wielding man in what they have described as a domestic violence-related incident.

Brisbane Airport was reopened shortly after midnight, however passengers have been warned that delays are expected to continue well into Sunday.

Police published a photograph of the fake bomb yesterday, with Queensland police commissioner Ian Stewart telling reporters it was an illustration of the "extraordinary lengths" the man had gone to "to create a perception of risk, threat and fear".

"It will take some time to get operations back to normal", an airport representative said in a statement.

Assistant Police Commissioner Peter Crawford said the man's statements led police to search a number of premises and vehicles for improvised explosive devices.

The incident sparked a major response from Queensland Police and the Australian Federal Police, with an emergency declared and the terminal evacuated.

Police will wait until he recovers before determining with the court when he will first appear.
