A Sudbury man in his 50s was arrested at the Balmoral Apartment complex on Bruce Avenue Friday, after allegedly attempting to enter neighbouring residences while carrying weapons. 

On July 24, Greater Sudbury Police (GSPS) received a call from a resident of the building stating that there was an individual carrying weapons in the hallway, attempting to enter their home and others, knocking on doors, and threatening tenants. 

Several weapons were said to be in the individual's possession, said GSPS Sgt. Jack Sivazlian, but added that the type of weapons can not yet be made public. 

The incident is believed to have taken place over three hours before the GSPS Tactical Unit was deployed and officers were able to resolve the situation without incident or injury. 

As a result of the incident, the accused has been charged with the following:

  • Possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace; 
  • Uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm; and 
  • Break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence. 

More charges may be added to the list above once further investigation into the incident is concluded, said Sivazlian. 

The accused was scheduled to appear in bail court this morning. Police were not able to comment on whether he remained in custody.
