WINNIPEG - Police needed their tasers to take down a violent man armed with a knife in the intersection of Pembina Highway and McGillivray Boulevard.
Last night at 9:0 P.M. police responded to the call after the suspect stabbed the hood of a car in the intersection and threatened to kill the driver.
When police arrived he was in the intersection in a "fighting stance". He dropped his knife and advanced towards the officers, refusing to comply with their orders, so a taser was deployed to safely take him into custody.
35 year-old Jeremy Brad Barker has been charged with:
- Uttering Threats - Cause Death or Bodily Harm
- Possession of a Weapon
- Mischief Under $5,000/Obstruct in Enjoyment
- Fail to Comply with Probation Order
He was detained in custody.
