A man is facing a number of charges after police say he was holding staff and patrons at knifepoint in a Winnipeg business over the weekend.
Police were called to an establishment in the 500 block of Balmoral Street around 1:15 a.m. Saturday.
Police say the man attempted to use a woman as a human shield when they arrived.
Officers used a Taser to disable the man and take him into custody, police said in a release Monday.
Police didn’t say whether or not the woman was injured.
A 37-year-old man from Winnipeg is charged with robbery, 10 counts of forcible confinement, 10 counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of possession of a weapon, and resisting a peace officer.
The man is also charged with possession of methamphetamine.
The accused has been detained in custody.
