Man charged for weapon in Kenora

Category: 

A Kenora resident has been charged following a report of a man with a weapon in the downtown area.

Around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, police were notified of a male walking in the downtown area with what appeared to be a weapon.

Kenora OPP officers attended the scene and located the suspect shortly after.

When the male did not comply when police approached to arrest him, a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) was deployed and he was arrested without incident.

As a result, a 26-year-old has been charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

He was held in custody pending a bail hearing yesterday.
