"Armed" man caused fear in Cairns, will be charged today

A 34-year-old Mooroobool man has been charged with ''going armed'' to cause fear and will appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court this afternoon.

He has been charged after he was seen walking around Lake and Grafton Streets this morning, carrying a replica hand gun.

Police would still like to speak to anyone that may have witnessed the incident at around 7.10am. The man parked his white Daihatsu Charade in the Lake Street Transit Mall and walked around Lake and Grafton Streets whilst carrying a weapon.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, tanned complexion, light brown short hair, 175cm, medium build with a short goatee. He was wearing blue shorts and a black t-shirt with writing on the back.
