A 32-year-old man is facing mischief and weapons-related charges after a window was smashed out at a business in downtown Lethbridge on Thursday.
Police were called about 9:30 p.m. for reports of damage in the 500 block of Seventh Street S.
Subsequent reports said the suspect also threatened the driver of a vehicle with a knife.
Officers arrived to find "a highly-agitated" man standing in the centre median of Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street S, "holding a knife in each hand," according to a release.
Police were able to convince the man to drop the knives and he was taken into custody without incident.
Brad Badura, of no fixed address, has been charged with:
- Possession of a weapon dangerous to the public;
- Assault with a weapon;
- Possession of a controlled substance, and;
- Three counts of failing to comply with conditions of a release order.
Badura was being held in custody Friday morning awaiting a bail hearing.
