OPP have arrested a Napanee man after a violent altercation with a weapon in the town Wednesday morning.

Police say they were called to the 2000 block of County Road 8 to respond to a dispute between two people who knew each other. This was not a domestic incident, according to OPP.

Calls to police say a person inside the home was armed with “an edged weapon.” When asked, OPP said the weapon was not a sword or a knife, but would not say what kind of weapon it was because it was “evidentiary in nature.”

By the time police arrived, other occupants inside the home had fled, but the suspect remained inside. Officers “made contact” with the person inside, who surrendered a short time later.
