A portion of 17 Avenue S.W. was blocked off for about five hours starting late Wednesday night because of a police incident.

At about 11 p.m., police were called to 17 Avenue near 10 Street S.W. because of a disturbance.

When they arrived, they found someone had barricaded themselves inside one of the units in the condo complex.

A number of police vehicles, including the tactical team, responded to the scene, which shut down 17 Avenue between 10 and 11 Street S.W.

Officials told CTV News that one person was assaulted by a suspect who then locked himself inside one of the units.

The incident was resolved at around 3 a.m. Thursday, when the tactical team entered the unit and arrested the suspect.

Police say a 46-year-old man is charged with assault and mischief.
