Around noon on Monday, witnesses called a policeman about a man walking in the neighborhood of the hill's eyebrows with a hatchet.
"Patrol police quickly found the suspect and tried to talk to him," said New West Police spokeswoman Sgt. Release Justintom. "But the suspect raised his hatchet in a threatening manner and charged the police with him."
The policeman managed to dodge the man and then took off. More police arrived, and the suspect was soon discovered and taken to a cell at the New Westminster police station.
"I'm worried about this unprovoked attack on our officers," Tom said. "This could have been a tragedy. No officers or bystanders were injured or killed."
Police assault, obstruction of weapons for dangerous purposes And allegations of possession are pending.
Anyone who has seen a suspect or assault but has never spoken to the police will be asked to call 604-525-5411.
