A 14-year-old has been charged after an early morning weapons-related call in Burk’s Falls.
Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, Provincial Const. Melissa Thomas says the accused cannot be identified.
She says officers with Almaguin Highlands OPP were called around 9:15 a.m. on Oct. 30 after being told about a youth concealing a firearm.
She says after arriving, they found the youth had used what was revealed to be an “imitation firearm” to intimidate and assault another young person.
The youth from Emsdale, Ont., has been charged with failing to comply with an undertaking, assault, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and pointing a firearm.
A court date is scheduled late this month in Sundridge, Ont.
