On February 7, 2020, at approximately 3:45 AM, an officer on patrol observed a male party hunched over at a pay phone in the area of Christina Street and London Road.
Out of concern for the individual the officer attended to the person to ensure that he was alright. Once the officer approached the male the officer recognized who it was and realized that there was an outstanding warrant for the male regarding breaches he was alleged to have committed.
Officers attempted to calm the man down as he was becoming agitated when he was advised that he was under arrest. The suspect then began walking away from the officers and kept his right hand in his coat pocket. Officers repeatedly instructed the suspect to take his hand out of his pocket.
When officers approached the suspect to take control the male brandished a silver steak knife and began waving it at the officers threatening to kill them.
At this time the officers drew their side arms and repeatedly ordered the man to drop the knife. The suspect finally complied and threw the knife to the ground at which time he was arrested without further incident.
Harvey Dale George, 40 years of age, faces the following charges:
Harvey George has since been remanded into custody pending a bail hearing.
