West Shore RCMP say a man who was “waving around a knife” in View Royal was arrested and no one was injured in the incident.
On March 25, police were called to the area behind Four Mile Liquor Store at 01-1505 Admirals Way in View Royal.
Witnesses reported seeing the man waving around a knife and sticking it in the air, while appearing to be under the influence of drugs. Police were able to find and arrest the man for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
When police searched the man, they found and seized a large knife with an approximately nine-inch long blade, a replica handgun, and a small amount of what is suspected to be crack cocaine.
He was taken into police custody then released on an undertaking to not possess and knives or weapons or to attend the Four Mile Liquor Store once he was sober.
