Sedation required for man causing early-morning disturbance in Winnipeg, say police

A man accused of causing a disturbance outside a Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Station early Monday had to be sedated after police say he started fighting with responding officers.

Police were called to the reports of an agitated man banging on the windows of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Station on Furby Street near Notre Dame Avenue around 4:40 a.m.

The man, who police say later armed himself with a piece of wood that he began swinging violently, was found in a nearby yard at a home on Bannantyne Avenue.

Police say he became combative with officers and nearby homeowners were warned to stay indoors.
