POLICE – Suspect with knife in pocket arrested at construction site

A report of a man acting strangely at a construction site resulted in an arrest today (Aug. 1, 2017).

Cpl. Jodie Shelkie said RCMP received a report about 10 a.m. that a man had been escorted out of a construction site on McGill Road and that he appeared to have a knife in his pocket.

Police officers found him still in the area.  When they detained him to determine if he did have a knife, he ran away, attempting to evade the police.  Officers apprehended and arrested him.

Shelkie said he was found to have a knife with a six-inch blade in his pant pocket.

The 20-year-old suspect will be released with a future court date.
