A Windsor man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant was arrested in London following a spree of incidents.
It began on Monday, April 15 around 5 a.m. when a man heard a car alarm in the area of his home on Hillcrest Avenue.
When he went outside to inspect, he found a man by the shed in his backyard. London police say the suspect threatened to stab the man and ran away.
About two hours later, a woman on Kaladar Drive was approached by an unknown man demanding the keys to her car. She reported that he grabbed her by the wrist and had a knife in his hand, however when she screamed for help he ran away.
A police canine unit located the suspect and he was taken into custody. It was then that police learned he was wanted on a nation-wide parole warrant.
Jason Long, 25, of Windsor, is charged with armed robbery and uttering threats/death or bodily harm.
The accused appeared in London court yesterday in relation to the charges.
