An armed Ontario man was arrested after a tense situation at a Headingley-area business Wednesday, Manitoba RCMP said.
Police said they were called to the business around 6:30 p.m., where they say a suspect brandishing a large knife was smashing things and acting in a dangerous manner.
According to police, the man was in a “highly agitated state” and began harming himself by running into objects inside the business.
Police were able to arrest him after deploying a taser, and seized the knife.
