One man has been arrested after allegedly threatening an apartment building resident in Brampton Monday night.

Peel Regional Police Const. Akhil Mooken says officers got the call just after 8:00 p.m. The complainant said the suspect attended their door in an apartment building, and made threats indicating a firearm.

The incident occurred in the area of Queen Street and West Drive in Brampton.

The suspect fled once police arrived, but officers were able to locate him within the building a short time later. He's now in custody.

It's not known if the suspect and complainant are known to each other.

Mooken says there's no evidence there actually was a firearm — it was just indicated.
