A 25-year-old man faces multiple charges after a stand-off with police which saw the man take a female bystander hostage.

At around 9am on Sunday, police received reports of a Holden Commodore stolen from a residence in Florey.

On Monday morning, the alleged stolen vehicle was spotted by police in Kingston. The driver was reported to be travelling at high speeds and refused to stop the vehicle when directed by police.

The driver then headed down the wrong side of Wentworth Avenue, colliding head-on with another vehicle.

Police halted the pursuit to aid the driver involved in the collision with the stolen vehicle.

Police resumed their pursuit a brief time after the stolen vehicle was spotted in Weston Park, Yarralumla, where the vehicle collided with a fence.

The driver is reported to have climbed the fence into a nearby golf club and fled the scene on foot.

As the pursuit continued, the man took hold of a female hostage leading to a brief stand-off with police.

Following officers drawing their tasers, the woman was released unharmed, and the man was taken into custody.

The 25-year-old is facing multiple charges, including driving and drug offences, use of a weapon, and making a demand with a threat to kill.

He appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.
