Vancouver Police arrest man with weapon in East Van

VANCOUVER Police arrested a man on Thursday who was allegedly waving a weapon and making threats to kill police.

A citizen called 9-1-1 around 4 p.m. on July 25, after seeing a man behaving erratically and waving what appeared to be a knife near Kingsway and Victoria Drive. The suspect was allegedly threatening to stab and kill police.

VPD officers located a suspect nearby, and used a taser and bean-bag shotgun rounds during the arrest. No police or members of the public were injured.

The suspect was taken to hospital where, after a few hours, additional examination discovered a serious medical condition.

The Independent Investigations Office is now investigating, and no additional information is available at this time.
