September 11 – 12, 2018 Incidents

Disturb the Peace

Police responded to a disturbance at a convenience store on King St. West this morning at 2:40 am. Three people ended up in police custody over what started as a dispute over cigarettes. A 46 year old male and 33 year old male were charged under the city’s bylaw for fighting and released at the scene.   The third male, 25 years old, was arrested for obstructing the officers while they were trying to arrest one of the combatants. He was later released unconditionally. It appears alcohol was a factor in the disturbance.



On the 25th of March 2017 a 25 year old male was arrested in relation to a domestic occurrence where he threatened a female complainant. He was brought before the courts and released with a new court date. The male then failed to re-attend court as required. He was involved in a pursuit on the June the 12th 2018, where he managed to evade arrest. The male was then involved in another domestic related occurrence on August 31st this year that resulted in another charge of threatening.

On September 11, 2018 at 9:00 pm officers were dispatched to an apartment in the center of the city where they happened to locate the accused in the lobby of the building. The officers recognized the male from previous dealings. He attempted to use a false name to avoid arrest. The officers then attempted to arrest the male who then resisted violently. The officers continued to struggle with the male and discovered that he was armed with a knife in his hand. The male was eventually handcuffed and the officers managed to secure the knife without injury.

The now 26 year old male is in police custody pending a bail hearing facing the following charges:

  1. Resist arrest
  2. Possession of property obtained by crime
  3. Possession of a weapon
  4. Personation with intent to resist arrest

Public Intoxication

Police responded to a King St. apartment at the request of ambulance as they had been called to respond to a male lying on the ground in front of the building, the result of a possible fight. When officers arrived they discovered that the injuries of the intoxicated male were the result of falling down the stairs at the apartment. The injured male was treated by paramedics. A second male at the scene was arrested for public intoxication. He was released from custody when sober.
