Charges are pending against a Central Cariboo man, arrested on Friday after allegedly threatening his family, himself and police.
The suspect is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
An update on the incident was provided by RCMP this afternoon
Corporal Madonna Saunderson, with North District RCMP, tells us how the arrest was made…
“The police immediately attended the scene and quickly learned that the man was alone in the home at the time. After a successful negotiation the man was arrested at around 2-30 p.m. and thankfully nobody was injured during this investigation.”
Saunderson says the original call for help came in at around 1-09 p.m.
The residence was located on Likely Road and Emergency Health Services personnel and the Big Lake Fire Department also assisted police in making sure that the area and roadway was kept clear during police negotiations.
The man has been remanded and remains in police custody.
