Barricaded Person Arrested in Oakville

​On July 8 2020, at approximately 12:45 pm, the Halton Regional Police Service responded to the area of Upper Middle Road and Ninth Line in Oakville after receiving a call regarding a male barricaded in a home and armed with a knife.

Frontline officers, TAC, K9, and negotiators were deployed to the scene to bring this to a safe conclusion.

Roads were closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic in the immediate area.

During negotiations, the male exited the home unharmed and surrendered to police. A male youth has been subsequently charged with Forcible Confinement and was held pending a bail hearing.
