A 32-year-old Thunder Bay man has been charged after allegedly trying to force his way into a residence on Trillium Place on Tuesday night and threatening another man with a weapon.

Police said the incident occurred just before 7 p.m. The accused, who police said was intoxicated, was refused entry into the residence, but then tried to force his way in.

The victim sustained minor injuries, and the accused fled the scene.

Responding police officers located the accused at a nearby residence, and he was arrested without incident.

He's been charged with assault with a weapon, and has been released from custody pending a future court appearance.
