UPDATE:Police charge man after Rockhampton CBD arrest

UPDATE: Police have confirmed a man has been dealt trespass and public nuisance charges after he was arrested in the Rockhampton CBD this morning. 

Queensland police could not confirm whether the man had a weapon despite initial reports suggesting he was wielding a large knife. 

He will face the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on July 6. 

INITIAL: Queensland police have confirmed one man is in custody after reportedly walking through the CBD armed.

A police spokesman said crews were tasked to the corner of Williams St and Bolsover St at 8.05am after receiving reports a man was allegedly knocking on car windows and shopfronts with "something in his hand".

Police caught up with the man outside the Commonwealth Bank in the CBD where he was then arrested just after 8.15am.

Initial reports suggested the man was armed with a six inch-long knife.

More to come.
