Ridge Meadows RCMP have arrested the 29-year-old man after an alleged assault and threats report on 232nd Street in Maple Ridge last week.
Police were called to the condominium unit in the 11100-block of 232 Street just after 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, a male had gained entrance to a residence without permission.
He then allegedly threatened the occupants of the home while brandishing a knife.
Members of Ridge Meadows RCMP, Lower Mainland District’s Emergency Response Team, the Integrated Police Dog Services, and Air One responded and a thorough search of the residence and surrounding area was conducted.
The suspect was not initially located.
However, Dustin Edwin Wied was arrested without incident at a friend’s home around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23.
He was held in police custody until his first court appearance on Monday, Oct. 24.
He is now before the courts on charges of assault and two counts of uttering threats.
