This morning, Thursday, July 30, 2020, we received information that a Wanted Party was at a residential building on Beatty Street in Greater Sudbury. The 38 year old man was wanted in connection to a Break and Enter, Serious Assault and a Robbery with a Firearm that took place on July 26, 2020 at a residence on Frood Road. The victim, a 36 year old man sustained serious injuries as a result of the incident.

Shortly after receiving the call regarding the wanted man, Tactical Officers arrived in the area in order to set up a perimeter. While on scene, Officers saw a man believed to be the wanted party exit the building and then immediately go back inside.

Patrol Officers arrived on scene and took over the perimeter, restricting vehicle and pedestrian traffic on Beatty Street while Tactical and K9 Officers set up containment of the residential building. Tactical Officers made multiple attempts to speak with the man, however he was not cooperative.

Tactical Officers cleared all of the units inside the building except for the one where the man was believed to be hiding.

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division applied for and were granted a Warrant in order for Officers to make entry into the unit.

Just before 4:30 p.m. Tactical and K9 Officers made entry into the unit and took the man into custody.

The 38 year old man has been charged with the following under the Criminal Code of Canada;

  • Robbery with a Firearm
  • Using a Firearm While Committing an Indictable Offence
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Break and Enter with Intent
  • Utter Threats to Cause Death x2

He will be held in Police custody in order to attend Bail Court tomorrow, Friday, July 31, 2020 to answer to the charges. His name cannot be released at this time as the information has not yet been sworn to through the Court process.

We would like to thank everyone for your cooperation and patience during this incident.
