Kelowna – A man and woman were arrested for brandishing a weapon at a Rutland restaurant Tuesday.
Const. Joe Duncan says the pair, a 33-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman with no fixed address, were arrested a few hours after the Swankie's Hot Dog Restaurant on Rutland Road was closed following an incident involving a weapon shortly after noon on May 26.
Local schools were placed on lockdown while a police service dog searched the area. Police obtained a number of witness statements and several leads, Duncan says in a release.
RCMP located the suspects shortly after 5 p.m. and the woman was released without charges. The man is being held in custody and faces potential charges of uttering threats, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
