Enderby RCMP officers approached an apartment complex with caution after a report of a man carrying a sword.

Shortly before 7 p.m. Jan. 9, officers responded to a report of a man at a Baird Avenue apartment complex carrying a sword and yelling at a fellow complex resident to “come out and fight.”

“When our officers attended, they were not able to find the suspect,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“He was found back in his residence in an intoxicated state and was arrested for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.”

A Samurai sword was located in the apartment and was seized by RCMP.

The 49–year-old man was kept in RCMP cells overnight.

No charges in the matter are pending.
