A 29-year-old Grande Prairie man is facing charges after RCMP say he was trying to get into their vehicles with an axe.
Police say they found the man in their back parking lot just before 6 p.m. Friday.
He ran away when confronted by police and was arrested after a foot chase across the street.
Charges against Trevor Martineau include assaulting a peace officer, uttering threats and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
He made his first court appearance Monday. He has been remanded until his next court appearance September 6.
