Williams Lake Hospital on lockdown earlier Wednesday…

WILLIAMS LAKE, BC: On Wednesday March 13, 2019 at 2:08 PM, Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake was placed on lockdown after it was reported that a man, armed with a knife was in the hospital.

Frontline responders from Williams Lake immediately attended the hospital to search for the suspect.
An adult male, who was located outside the hospital, attempted to flee from police on foot. After a short foot chase the 26 year-old Williams Lake man was arrested.

Through investigation it was discovered that the male did not have a knife as originally reported and that his behavior was medically related and not criminal in nature. There were no reports of injury to hospital staff or patients.

The lockdown has since been removed.

Written and released by North District RCMP.
