Apr 15 2012
A Saanich man being served an eviction notice grabbed an axe and threatened his landlord last night.
The landlord moved away from the tenant and called Saanich Police, who contained the area in the 1700-block of Cedar Hill Cross Road shortly after 8:30 p.m.
Police got in touch with the disgruntled tenant by telephone and he came out and surrendered himself without incident. Police are recommending the 43-year-old man be charged with uttering threats and assault with a weapon.
