Just after 3:30 a.m. on October 9, 2018, patrol officers observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed as it swerved off Arthur Street onto May Street, failing to stop at the red light.

Officers followed the vehicle that stopped in the laneway behind the Columbus Center. The male driver exited the vehicle brandishing a knife and began to flee. An officer pursued him and the male then pulled out a hammer and swung it at the officer. A second officer assisted in getting the male handcuffed after a struggle. A female in the vehicle exited and began aggressively yelling and swearing at the officers. She was also taken into custody. A search of the male resulted in several weapons being seized.
