Male in Distress

On September 4, 2019, at approximately 8:45 AM members of the Medicine Hat Police Service responded to the Food Bank following a report of an erratic adult male who may possibly be in possession of a weapon.

Upon arrival, police located the male who appeared highly agitated and verbally aggressive. The male was quickly removed from the grounds and taken into custody. The male was not found to be in possession of any weapons.

The male is believed to be suffering from mental health distress and possible use of street narcotics. The male will be held in police custody pending a welfare check by a physician. No criminal charges are pending from this incident.
