North Bay man faces charges for threats, weapons and unlawfully in a dwelling

Following an investigation into calls to police received yesterday morning, North Bay Police arrested and charged Peter Quenneville, age 41, of North Bay with:

  • One count of utter threats;
  • One count of unlawfully in a dwelling house;
  • One count of carrying a concealed weapon;
  • One count of weapons dangerous;
  • One count of possession of a prohibited weapon; and
  • Six counts of breach of probation.

It is alleged that shortly before 10 a.m. on Tuesday October 20th, 2015, the accused entered a downtown retail business and made threats to an employee and then left the scene on foot. The employee, who did not know the accused, called 911 to report the incident to police.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m., the accused walked into a residence located seven blocks away from the store. A male resident, who was home at the time and did not know the accused, repeatedly told the accused to leave the premises but he refused.

The accused then pulled out a kitchen knife he had in his possession. Concerned for his safety and that of another resident in the home, the resident was able to defend himself with a bat and succeeded in convincing the accused to leave the premises. The accused fled the scene on foot. The residents called 911 to report the incident to police.

North Bay Police located the accused on foot between Fifth and Sixth Avenues shortly thereafter where he was arrested. Following a search after the arrest, police seized a kitchen knife and a prohibited flick knife as evidence.

The accused was held in custody pending a bail hearing today.
