A man and a woman are facing multiple charges after they allegedly brandished a handgun and made threats against a victim in an east London, Ont. home over the weekend, police said.

According to the London Police Service, at approximately 2:10 a.m. on Saturday, a man and woman attended a residence in the area of Wavell Street and Dundas Street when police said the man produced a firearm and threatened an individual inside the home.

The suspects then fled the residence and police were contacted, in which a description of the suspects and vehicle were provided.

Officers later located and arrested a man and woman in a nearby parking lot, where a search yielded a loaded handgun.

As a result of the investigation, a 28-year-old man and woman, both of London, have been jointly charged with the following offences for their alleged involvement:

  • Unauthorized possession of a firearm
  • Occupy motor vehicle with firearm
  • Possess firearm other than restricted or prohibited firearm

In addition, the 28-year-old male has also been charged with the following offences:

  • Uttering threats of death or bodily harm
  • Use of firearm during commission of an indictable offence

Both of the accused were scheduled to make a court appearance on Monday in connection to the charges. Top Stories
