No bail for man accused of pulling knife

Bail has been denied for a man accused of pulling a knife on a hotel employee.

The employee was left visibly shaken by the ordeal, Crown attorney Marnie Evans said.

"It was obviously a very traumatic, very serious incident," Evans said as she outlined the following allegations during a bail hearing in Brandon court on Monday.

The allegations have not been proven.

On the evening of Dec. 16, Evans said, a man confronted an employee in the beer vendor at the Crystal Hotel.

"You’re the guy who keeps phoning the police on me. I’m going to f--k you up," the man told the employee.

Retreating behind the counter, the employee denied the accusation and said it was another hotel worker who’d called police.

The man then pulled a knife and waved it in the employee’s face.

The phone in the vendor then rang and the frightened man told another employee in the hotel bar that he needed help, Evans said.

The man with the knife then left, but not before making another threat: "You tell that other guy that when I come back to see him I’m going to f--k him up and kill him."

The armed man was known to staff because he’d caused problems in the past and had been banned from the vendor.

Police tracked the suspect down to another downtown hotel. A knife with a 3.5-inch blade was found in his jacket pocket, Evans said.

Robert Arnold Creasy, 47, was denied bail on charges that include assault with a weapon and uttering threats. He remains in custody as he awaits his next court date on Jan. 16.
