At 6:35am Saturday morning, Charlottetown Police Services responded to a complaint of a male attempting to gain entry into an employee entrance of a local business on University Avenue. The male was observed by staff attempting to enter the building behind them. When staff told him he wasn’t allowed to enter and pulled the door shut, he became aggressive and pulled a knife threatening them. The male then fled the area prior to Police arrival.
The male suspect identified by video surveillance and was located and arrested in the afternoon on Queen Street.
As the result of the investigation, a 39 year old New Brunswick male has been charged with assault with a weapon, breach of a release order and breach of probation. He was remanded in custody and will appear in Provincial Court this afternoon.
