Victoria police arrested two men following reports of an attempted knifepoint robbery at a downtown intersection yesterday evening.

Patrol officers were called to the intersection of View and Broad just before 8:30 p.m. last night after receiving reports that a man was brandishing a knife at two others, according to a release.

Officers were able to take the suspect into custody after a search of the area led them to the victims and witnesses. Witnesses pointed out the suspect as he attempted to leave the area.

Further investigation led officers to seize a knife and take another man into custody for his involvement in the incident.

The victims did not receive any physical injuries.

Officers are recommending charges for assault with a weapon and the possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
