Neighbour threatens loud partiers with knife

VicPD respond to alleged threats

A knife was a Victoria man’s silencer of choice when he went after a group of neighbours at their Gorge Road apartment Sunday morning.

Just before 2 a.m.,  the man yelled at four people getting out of a cab for being too loud on their way to the apartment’s lobby.

Moments later, the man met the group in the hallway, armed with a 30-centimetre knife. He allegedly threatened to stab them for being too loud.

Police were called and 10 minutes after they arrived, the suspect was in the halls again, apparently to go for a walk.

A 31-year-old man was arrested and could be charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a dangerous weapon and uttering threats.
