Makkovik RCMP Arrest Man Threatening Police With a Knife

Police responded to a request to attend a residence in Makkovik.

Upon arrival, police entered the home into a confined space where 34-four-year-old Thomas Evans-Dyson was holding a large knife.

He pointed it at the officers and threatened to kill them.

Officers began verbal negotiations, while one officer drew a service pistol and the other a taser in response to the threat. Police were able to de-escalate the situation, using tools of their training, which ended with Evans-Dyson dropping the knife and cooperating with police commands. He was taken into custody without incident.
