VIDEO: Armed police presence at Surrey City Hall ends in arrest

Surrey RCMP say a man carrying an ‘edged’ weapon was arrested

SURREY — A police incident at Surrey City Hall around lunchtime Wednesday ended with a man being arrested.

Surrey RCMP say a “distraught” man with an “edged” weapon was detained after a call to police came in around noon.

A video obtained by the Now-Leader shows police with what appear to be rifles in the parkade of the building.

At one point, a woman is seen rushing two young children past armed officers.

The incident lasted about 20 to 30 minutes, according to police, and the man was arrested around 12:30.

Surrey RCMP say no was hurt.
