LETHBRIDGE, AB – A man has been arrested following a disturbance Tuesday (Dec. 29) at a west side home.
Lethbridge Police arrived on scene and spoke with the home’s occupants about what was going on.
That’s when one person came out of a room, armed with two black pistols and pointed them at the officers.
LPS though were able to quickly disarm the man and take him into custody without anyone getting hurt.
The firearms turned out to be pellet guns.
Trent Brandon Oka is facing a number of charges including assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, pointing a firearm, and using an imitation firearm.
Oka was let go following a release hearing with a court date set for late January 2021.
A job well done by @lethpolice front line officers yesterday in #yql. Officers were dealing with a very dynamic situation involving a male in possession of these two pistols. Officers disarmed the individual successfully. Guns turned out to be pellet guns. Well done! pic.twitter.com/y1eVBOyYxq
