Victoria police say they de-escalated an armed man in a mental health crisis Thursday morning.
Shortly before 11:30 a.m. on March 11, officers were called to a medical facility for a report that a man in a mental health crisis was threatening people with a knife. Officers located a man outside the facility holding the knife to his own neck.
Using crisis intervention and de-escalation training, VicPD said officers convinced the man to drop the knife and surrender to police. He was taken to hospital for a mental health assessment.
No one was injured in the incident.
