Nanaimo RCMP say a 37-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening after a reported assault with a weapon.
Police say on Tuesday evening, they received a report of an assault with a weapon that had just occurred at a home.
According to police, it was reported that during the assault, a gun was brandished toward a victim.
It was also reported that the suspect had fled from the scene in his own vehicle.
Just after 8 p.m., officers found the suspect’s vehicle parked near his home in north Nanaimo. After police used a loudhailer (megaphone) to talk to the man, he walked out of his house and was arrested.
Police are now seeking judicial authorization to enter the man’s home.
