Thunder Bay Police on Friday apprehended a man wanted in Toronto on multiple charges including weapons-related offences, aggravated assault of an officer, flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Kibrom Kevin Tesfay, 25, was initially located in a vehicle with two other males in a parking lot at the corner of Arthur Street and Vickers Street just before 12:30 pm.
The Emergency Task Unit attempted to arrest him but he fled along with one of the other men.
Tesfay was subsequently picked up in the area of Ridgeway and Vickers Streets.
A 39 year old Thunder Bay man was also arrested, on drug-related charges.
Thunder Bay Police said a Ministry of Natural Resources K-9 unit was brought in to search for a firearm that officers believed one of the fleeing men may have dropped. No weapon was located.
The vehicle the men were using has been towed to the Thunder Bay Police station.
Tesfay was featured this week in the Toronto police edition of the Wanted Wednesday program.
