A man is taken into custody after knife incident on Friday.


hilliwack RCMP did a good job de-escalating a potentially dangerous situation Friday when a man armed with a knife holed himself up in an apartment in the 46000 block of First Ave.


A woman inside the unit alerted police around 4:30 p.m. who quickly moved in.

Apparently the man, in his 20s, was known to have run from police in the past, so a perimeter was set up around the structure first before attempting to extricate him. He was then arrested without further incident and taken to Chilliwack General Hospital.
