Passersby saw a man wearing a T-shirt waving his arms and walking around in the Tranquille Road market area early today (Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016).
It looked like he was under the influence of drugs, and he resisted when they tried to apprehend him. He pulled and knife and fought with police.
A police service dog and several more officers were needed in order to get him into custody, after which he was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The man faces charges of resisting arrest and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace. He remains in custody awaiting a court appearance.
