Man arrested after hurling knives at victims and pointing a firearm at officers



On July 20, 2023, police received information from witnesses that the accused was under the influence of drugs and throwing knives off a balcony at people on Bayswater Place.


As responding officers approached the rear of the building the accused pointed a firearm at them. The officers took cover and called for backup. Eventually police convinced the accused to drop the firearm. The officers then responded to the apartment and arrested him after a brief struggle without further incident.


Numerous hunting knives and two firearms both found to be replicas, were located on the ground.


The accused was transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing.


A 35-year-old local man was charged with two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of pointing a firearm, and possession of weapons dangerous to public peace.
