An arrest has been made and charges laid, in that emergency situation yesterday in Smooth Rock Falls.
A safety alert was issued in the late afternoon, advising people in the Fourth Ave.-Main St. area to stay indoors and lock their doors and windows, while police looked for an armed man.
The alert was lifted about two hours later, when a 37-year-old man was arrested. OPP say it was a domestic incident. They’ve charged him with assault with a weapon; possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose; and firearm possession contrary to a probation order.
