The man was taken into custody without incident a few hours later and remains in custody pending a court appearance next week.

“This was an isolated incident involving two people who knew each other, at no time was the general public at risk,” says Detachment Commander of the Northern Rockies RCMP Sgt. Steve McLeod.
