A 23 year old man from Saskatoon is in custody after a disturbance on Christmas Eve at approximately 7: 30 p.m. in the 1300 block of 20th St West. The 23 yr old man was reported to be running in traffic by St Paul's hospital. Officers checked the area and were directed to a group of people in the 1300 Block of 20th Street.

Officers observed the man inside the entrance of an apartment building with a long kitchen knife. The officers demanded he drop the knife and after several commands from police he dropped the knife. The male seemed to be under the influence of some sort of drug at the time of this incident as he was making stabbing motions towards the window of the apartment building. The man was taken into custody without further incident. The 23 year old man is charged with assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. The 23 year old man will be held in SPS Detention Centre until Christmas morning when he will see a Justice of the Peace.
