A Minyip man's request for bail has been denied in the wake of a six-hour siege at the weekend.
Robert Beck, 43, appeared at Ararat Magistrates' Court on Monday and applied for bail, with Victoria Police laying 11 charges.
Mr Beck represented himself at court as Minyip Acting Sergeant Michael Baldock read a summary of the offences alleged from Saturday's incident.
Mr Beck did not issue a plea.
"Police received information a male was walking with two knives in Minyip and had made threats to kill," Acting Sergeant Baldock said.
"Men at the second-hand shop heard him say to he would kill them with the knives and they had genuine fear for their lives.
"Police responded and found the man with a backpack and knives in a tea towel. When I approached him he threw the backpack on the ground, with three knives falling out."
Acting Sergeant Baldock said the situation escalated when police began talking to Mr Beck.
"He said 'I will f****** kill all you dog c****'. With firearms drawn we attempted to talk him down and he was saying, 'I'm not going back to jail'," Acting Sergeant Baldock said.
"He ran down South Street into a house on 112 Main Street, Minyip. No one lives there but it is a friend's house Mr Beck looks after.
"He threatened to burn the house down so we called the Critical Incident Response Team and the dog squad.
"A negotiator was organised and it was approximately a six-hour siege before the accused handed himself into police."
Mr Beck said he had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and had been visiting a psychiatrist.
Police and Magistrate Mark Stratmann agreed bail was not appropriate.
Mr Stratmann denied Mr Beck's application and remanded him in custody to reappear at Horsham Magistrates' Court on March 25.
"You present as an intelligent and articulate man but I am going to remand you in custody today," Magistrate Stratmann said.
"Bail has been refused on the grounds of failing to give a compelling reason.
"You should think about getting more legal advice and in the meantime, you will undergo assessment to ensure the care you receive is appropriate."
