Charlottetown Police Services attended a residence on Parkdale Crescent Sunday morning at 5:25 am in response to an assault complaint.
The male suspect was believed to be armed with a knife and would not exit the property upon Police arrival and barricaded himself inside. Police attempted to talk the male out without success. The rapid tactical deployment unit was utilized and deployed tear gas. The male exited the residence and was arrested without incident.
A 58 year old Charlottetown male remains in custody and is undergoing a psychiatric assessment. Charges are expected to be laid once the assessment is complete.
The victim has since been released from hospital following treatment for minor injuries.
