A couple of concerned citizens are to thank for stopping a potential machete attack in Kitchener.
Police say a man was caught trespassing Tuesday evening, but was scared off by the homeowner.
The man then took off to a nearby parking lot and reportedly tried to strike someone with a machete, but was held back by the concerned homeowner and another witness.
The 26-year-old faces numerous charges including assault with a weapon and possession of stolen property.
And Monday in that city, a man threatened a neighbour and his dog, while holding a rifle. A 50 year old man is charged with uttering death threats, and possession of a prohibited weapon.
