VicPD arrested a man over the weekend after he allegedly pounded on a person’s door wielding a steel bar and uttering threats.

Police were called to a multi-unit residential temporary housing building in the 1900-block of Douglas Street just before 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 8th.

The 9-1-1 caller reported that a man was attempting to gain entry into a suite, by striking the door with a steel bar and threatening the occupant.

Officers responded and located the suspect in a different suite and knocked on the door.

VicPD said the suspect exited the suite and confronted the officers, refusing to comply with their demands.

Officers discharged a less-lethal “bean bag” round, striking the man in the leg.

He was then taken into custody without further incident, but refused medical treatment.

He was held in cells until processed and released on conditions pending a future court date.

The file remains under investigation and the man faces recommended charges of assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and failing to comply with a release order.
