Police Charge Calgary man after 17-hour Standoff in Mississauga

A Calgary man has been arrested and charged with multiple crimes following a 17-hour standoff with police at a medical facility in Mississauga Ontario on Friday.

Police have charged and arrested 66 year old Calgary man and recovered several weapons following a 17-hour negotiation.

Peel Regional Police said they received a call to a “critical incident” at a professional building on Eglinton Avenue West at around 7:40am. The police said they arrived to a “barricaded person” situation.

“This individual presented a significant risk to public safety, as well as the safety of all responding officers, as this building is in immediate proximity to a major health-care facility that provides critical care to the residents of Mississauga and beyond”, the police statement said.

The police crisis team responded to the situation and evacuated all occupants of the building while opening up negotiations with the man. The police was able to resolve the issue shortly after midnight on Saturday.

The man identified as William Horodyski, 66, from Calgary was taken into custody and charged with false alarm of fire, mischief, careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, mischief and three counts of forcible confinement.

The police said they will be “working closely with the Calgary Police Service in an attempt to understand fully the nature of the incident and the motives of the individual charged”. Officials said the incident was isolated.
