At 8:25 a.m. on Tuesday, June 30th, 2020, we received a call regarding a disturbance at a residence on Beatty Street in Sudbury involving a dispute.


Patrol Officers arrived on scene where it was determined that a man was armed with a weapon. The man, in crisis, barricaded himself inside the residence. Beatty Street and the surrounding area were immediately contained by Police to ensure public safety.


Tactical Officers maintained containment while negotiations with the man continued through the morning. Just before 11:00 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, June 30th, 2020, Officers were able to de-escalate the situation to a peaceful resolution.  The man was taken into custody and no one was injured as a result of this incident.


The 29-year old man is being charged with the following offences under the Criminal Code of Canada;

• Utter threats to cause bodily harm

• Weapons dangerous

• Assault with a weapon

• Break and enter


The man’s name cannot be released at this time as the information has not yet been sworn to through the Court process.

Officers will remain on scene, pending a search warrant.


We would like to thank the residents in the area for their cooperation and patience.
