A Coledale man has pleaded guilty to weapons charges after wielding a kitchen knife, a large garden hoe and a gaff hook during a six-hour standoff with police earlier this year.
It was just before midnight on January 28 when concerned neighbours phoned police to report swearing and screaming coming from the home Timothy John Nyboer shared with his elderly mother on Buttenshaw Drive.
Officers arrived within half an hour and were confronted by Nyboer, who was standing on the second-storey balcony yelling aggressively into the night.
He immediately rounded on police, screaming "I will take you all on" before arming himself with a knife and brandishing it in the air.
Nyboer's agitation increased and he continued to yell at police as they tried to talk him down.
"F--k you, I'm not coming out, you c--ts will arrest me and I'm not going to jail," he roared.
"I'm not going to jail. You will have to come up here and shoot me."
Nyboer then turned his attention on his neighbours, blaming them for an earlier incident which saw Wollongong City Council rangers seize his dogs.
"I'm going to go and kill that c--t first for getting my dogs put down. Before I go to jail I will kill that slut," he yelled.
At one stage during the siege Nyboer put the knife down and picked up a large garden hoe, telling police "f--k off from my property".
Realising Nyboer's attention was fixated on the front of the house were police were stationed, other officers moved to the back of the house and successfully extracted Nyboer's elderly mother from one of the bedrooms just after 1am.
She was treated for shock by NSW Ambulance paramedics.
Meanwhile, Nyboer swapped the garden hoe for a 1.2m-long gaff hook, pointed it at police and again refused to budge.
"I'm not f--king coming out, f--k you, I don't trust you c--ts," he yelled out one of the windows.
NSW Police negotiators and state protection support unit officers arrived on the scene at 4am and continued trying to negotiate with Nyboer, who was displaying increasingly erratic and aggressive behaviour.
However, police were able to negotiate his safe surrender just after 6.30am.
Nyboer was taken to Wollongong Police Station and charged with offensive behaviour, using an offensive weapon to prevent police investigation, using an offensive weapon to prevent arrest and resisting police.
He was also charged with cannabis cultivation after police discovered seven marijuana plants growing in his backyard.
Nyboer refused to be interviewed over the siege incident, however when asked about the cannabis, he was more willing to talk.
"I planted them, I looked after them, they're for my use," he said.
"I f--king hate hydro. Don't tell me you f--king took my plants?"
Nyboer pleaded guilty to all charges in Wollongong Local Court last week.
He remains in custody and will face sentencing on August 29.
