Knife-wield­ing man fights po­lice of­fi­cers

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - NEWS -

Brockville po­lice of­fi­cers on Tues­day bat­tled with a man armed with a knife to ar­rest him in con­nec­tion with do­mes­tic dis­putes. On March 25, 2017, po­lice ar­rested a 25-year-old man in re­la­tion to a do­mes­tic oc­cur­rence where he threat­ened a fe­male com­plainant, said po­lice. At the time, he was brought be­fore the courts and re­leased with a new court date, then failed to re­turn to court as re­quired. The man was in­volved in a pur­suit on June 12 of this year, where he man­aged to evade ar­rest. And on Au­gust 31, he was al­legedly in­volved in an­other do­mes­tic-re­lated oc­cur­rence that re­sulted in an­other charge of threat­en­ing. On Tues­day, at 9 p.m., of­fi­cers were dis­patched to an apart­ment in the cen­tre of the city where they hap­pened to lo­cate the ac­cused in the lobby of the build­ing. The of­fi­cers rec­og­nized the man, who tried to use a false name to avoid ar­rest, said po­lice. “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,” po­lice noted in a me­dia re­lease. The of­fi­cers even­tu­ally hand­cuffed the man and man­aged to se­cure the knife with­out in­jury. The ac­cused, now 26, was in po­lice cus­tody pend­ing a bail hear­ing on charges of re­sist­ing ar­rest; pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime; pos­ses­sion of a weapon; per­son­ation with in­tent to re­sist ar­rest; fail­ing to com­ply with re­cog­ni­zance (mul­ti­ple counts); fail­ing to com­ply with pro­ba­tion (mul­ti­ple counts); flight from po­lice; threats (mul­ti­ple counts); and fail­ing to at­tend court.
