An arrest has been made following an incident involving an imitation firearm last night.
On March 16, 2023 at around 11:00 p.m., police were called to the area of 22nd Street West and Avenue I North after a delivery driver was threatened with a firearm when he confronted a man breaking into his car.

Responding officers located and arrested the suspect a short distance away; an imitation firearm was found discarded in the snow nearby.
The 15-year-old male suspect has been charged with pointing a firearm, unauthorized carry of a concealed weapon, possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace, and assault with a weapon.
