The man refused to comply with police officer directions and PSD Robby was deployed to apprehend him, though the suspect continued to resist arrest.

A butcher knife was found on the ground near where the man was arrested.

Video surveillance from other homes in the area, that have been published on social media, also show a suspect in a hooded sweatshirt with a large knife in hand, trying door handles.

20 year old Mitchell Shot Both Sides has been charged with three counts of attempted break and enter, one count of break and enter, one count of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, and resisting arrest.

He remains in custody.
