A 19-year-old Ottawa faces a number of charges after allegedly pulling a knife on a police officer attempting to break up a fight Friday night
Ottawa police said in a release that at about 9:50 p.m. two RCMP officers working Canada Day security were approached by a person telling them of a fight near Booth and Fleet streets.
The area is about half a block south of LeBreton Flats, where the Canada Day show was being staged.
Officers located the disturbance and separated the fighting men.
“One of the men stood up and brandished a knife at the officers,” Ottawa police said in a communiqué Saturday.
There was no mention of injuries in the incident.
