A 21 year old man was arrested by police after an emergency call shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday (August 12th) at the corner of Burnside Road West and Harriet Road.
Several individuals were standing in front of the convenience store when they were approached by an agitated and intoxicated man who was waving around two knives. They ran inside the store and the man fled from the area.
Police found the man about 15 minutes later when he ran out of a nearby building. He was arrested at gunpoint without injury to himself or any of the police officers. Two knives were seized from the man – a folding utility knife and a long steak knife.
He was held overnight in police custody and will be facing a number of weapons charges.
