A ranting, naked man was making threats to hurt himself and others at the Verve Condo complex on Yates Road yesterday afternoon.
Just before 5 p.m. RCMP surrounded the complex and started negotiations with the man, as two ambulances were staged around the corner.
Witnesses say the man had a large knife and stood on a third floor balcony, with no clothes on, and yelled at people below for nearly an hour.
He eventually threw the blade to the ground and police moved in to take the man into custody.
More details to follow.
