Male Arrested For Assault With A Weapon & Threats To Cause Death

A 27 year old male has been arrested for assault with a weapon and threats to cause death after an altercation at a local restaurant this evening.

Just before 8 p.m. December 15, Saskatoon Police were called to a restaurant in the 1400 block of 22nd Street West. Bar staff had asked the man to produce identification before serving him and, when he didn't have any, they requested he leave the premises. The man pulled a knife and threatened staff.

Two plainclothes police officers were very closeby at the time of the call and they arrested the man without incident while he was still in the restaurant. Two knives have been seized.

The man will appear in provincial court tomorrow morning in relation to the above noted charges.
