CEW Deployed- 1400 Block 20th Street West

A 29 year old man is facing charges of weapon possession, obstruction and resisting arrest after officers attended to an apartment building in the 1400 block of 20th Street West to investigate a weapons complaint, in which a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) was deployed by the attending officers.

Approximately 8:20am on 23rd December 2019, police were called to investigate a complaint of a male with a golf club trespassing in an apartment building. Upon police arrival, the male with the golf club was uncooperative and attempted to flee from officers and when arrested was combative with police resulting in a CEW being deployed once, to assist in gaining control of the male.

No one was injured and the male will remain in police custody until he appears in front of a Justice of the Peace this evening.

The CEW deployment will be reviewed in accordance with policy.
