Winnipeg police have charged a man after they say he waved a gun at a city nightclub early Saturday.

Officers were called to the 400 block of Main Street just before 1 a.m. for a report of a man pointing a gun at security staff.

Police learned the suspect was previously tossed from the club due to his aggressive behaviour. Once outside, police say he took out a handgun and began waving it around. No shots were fired.


The suspect was located a short time later near Garry Street and arrested. Officers seized a replica BB gun at the scene.

Taher Abdul Haroon, 30, has been charged with multiple offences. He remains in custody.
