Male in custody after threats with knife
Cranbrook RCMP currently have a male in custody after an early morning altercation.
Early yesterday morning (Sept. 28), Cranbrook RCMP received a call to the 2300-block of 3rd Street S. The caller advised that he had caught someone breaking into his truck. The caller confronted the individual who proceeded to threaten him with a knife before jumping on a bike and riding away.
RCMP members were on site shortly after and were directed to an alley. Officers contained the area and located the male. The suspect refused to listen to the officer’s commands until more RCMP arrived on scene. The male was then taken into custody.
“We are thankful no one was injured during the confrontation with this individual. The caller was integral in directing members to where the suspect was heading which aided in the timely arrest,” said Cst. Katie Forgeron.
Gordon Aaron McLin, a 29-year-old male from Cache Creek, remains in custody facing several charges including possessing a weapon dangerous to public and assault with a weapon.
