A Windsor man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant was arrested in London following a spree of incidents.
It began on Monday 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 see what was happening he found a man by the shed in his backyard. Police say the suspect allegedly threatened to stab the man and ran away.
About two hours later a woman on Kaladar Drive was reportedly approached by an unknown male 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 Canine Unit located a 25-year-old man from Windsor and he was taken into custody.
It was then that police learned he was wanted on a nation-wide parole warrant.
He is charged with armed robbery and uttering threats of death or bodily harm.
