GANANOQUE – A man was arrested Wednesday night after witnesses came face-to-face with a suspect with a sheet over his face, swinging a weapon.

It happened around Coopers Alley and officers were able to arrest the man without incident after he was identified by witnesses.

Police were able to recover the white sheet and weapon, which had been dumped before the suspect had left the scene.

The weapon turned out to be a set of hedge clippers with a couple of 12-inch blades.

A 34-year-old man from Gananoque has been charged with possession of a dangerous weapon and two counts of failing to comply with a probation order.

The man was held for a bail hearing.
