Guelph police say a man has been charged after a road rage incident was reported over the weekend.
According to police, a woman called on Friday during rush hour to say that she had driven her vehicle through a parking lot of a plaza at Victoria Road North and Eramosa Road and was followed by another vehicle.
They say a man driving the other vehicle then allegedly pulled up beside her, pointed a weapon at her and threatened her.
Police say she was able to write down his licence plate and provide a description of the suspect.
The officers then went to a home in the north end of the city where they found the vehicle parked in a driveway.
Police say they then spoke to a man and found a BB gun inside his jacket while he had a second stashed in a satchel he was carrying.
They say the officers also found a lock-picking kit, a balaclava and gloves in the satchel.
A 24-year-old Guelph man is facing multiple charges including assault with a weapon, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, pointing a firearm, using an imitation firearm while committing an offence, uttering threats, and possessing break-in instruments.
