Police charge man in relation to Tuscany Club incident

Calgary Police have laid charges against a man in relation to an incident at the Tuscany Club community association that occurred last night.

At approximately 8:15 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, police were called to the Tuscany Club located at 212 Tuscany Way N.W. for reports of a suspicious person.

A man had entered the building, at which a federal election candidate’s forum was taking place. He was wearing a black hoodie, black shorts and a white hat and had a Confederate flag bandana covering his face.

The suspect was directed out of the building.

Police attended and discovered the suspect in a nearby stationary vehicle where he was taken into custody.

The investigation is ongoing.
