A Sudbury man was arrested yesterday evening after police say he exposed himself to a jogger and threatened several people with a knife.

Greater Sudbury Police received a call about a weapons complaint outside an establishment on Lorne Street at around 5:35 p.m. on Sept. 21.

But prior to receiving that call, police report the man allegedly exposed himself to a woman who was jogging on Lorne Street. Police said he then approached two people playing basketball in the same area, and began yelling at them. 

When confronted by one of the men, police said the man pulled a knife and began threatening them. He then returned to the original Lorne Street establishment where the initial weapons complaint allegedly occurred, where police say he could be heard yelling at two people across the street and waving a knife around.

When police arrived, officers report the man ran inside the building and into a room, closing the door behind him. Police spoke with him through the door and he eventually exited the room unarmed and surrendered.

The 43-year-old has been charged two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Two counts of uttering threats and one count of committing an indecent act.

He was held in custody pending a bail hearing today.
