Around 5:35 p.m. on Monday, September 21, 2020, we received a Weapons complaint outside of an establishment on Lorne Street in Greater Sudbury.

Prior to receiving the call, a man approached a woman while she was jogging on Lorne Street. The man exposed himself to her causing her to run from him.

The same man then approached two people playing basketball on Logan Street. The man began yelling at them and when confronted by one of the individuals the man pulled out a knife and began to threaten the two people.

The man then returned to the establishment on Lorne Street where he could be heard yelling at the two individuals from across the street while waving around the knife.

When Officers arrived on scene, the man was still yelling threats at the two people with the knife in his hand. The Officers approached the man who ran inside the establishment. The Officers continued to communicate with the man through the door until the man exited the room unarmed and surrendered to Police.

  • Indecent Act

He was held in Police custody and will attend Bail Court today, Tuesday, September 22, 2020 to answer to the charges.
