New Boston Road incident

An Albert Bridge man could be facing charges after a standoff with police yesterday.

Officers went to the man’s house on New Boston Road around 1:45 after a call with concerns about a man’s well-being after he barricaded himself inside his house and that he might have a gun.

Police surronded the house and set up roadblocks and evacuated neighbouring properties.  Crisis Negotiators talked the man into giving up without incident around 4:00.  Nobody was hurt.
