A 64-year-old Winnipeg man has been charged after police say he called in a bomb threat to a local business on Friday.
The man allegedly made the call from a payphone in the area of William Avenue and Main Street just before 8:30 a.m.
Police say the man called a business in the downtown area telling them it was to be “bombed out” on the weekend. He immediately hung up. Security at the building that received the threat didn’t turn up any suspicious items.
Police were able to speak with witnesses in the area, who described the man to officers. He was later found and arrested nearby.
Michael Randolph Parks remains in custody and is charged with public mischief.
