Man on the run after threatening tradies with gun
A man who threatened two tradies with a gun at Broadmeadows is on the run.
Neil Mitchell was tipped off to the incident at the start of his program on Wednesday.
The workmen entered a newly constructed townhouse on Metelman Court shortly after 7am when they were confronted by the man, who was armed.
The tradies understandably fled.
Heavily-armed police then arrived at the scene and stormed the property.
But the suspect had fled.
