Charge laid after man wields machete in residence

Early Sunday morning, Brandon Police Service officers responded to a report of a man armed with a machete at a city residence.

When police arrived shortly after 3:14 a.m. at the residence on the 100-block of 12th Street East, the suspect was in a suite at the lower level armed with a machete swinging it wildly about, BPS stated in a report Sunday.

After some negotiations with police the man was convinced to drop the machete and he was taken into custody without incident.

There were no injuries reported, police said, other than some minor self-inflicted cuts which the suspect received that required hospital treatment.

A 37-year-old Brandon man was later released, charged with possessing a dangerous weapon. He is to appear in court on March 3.
