Police have taken one man into custody after an incident Friday at the Akram Jomaa Mosque in northeast Calgary.
It is not considered a hate-motivated crime as the man is known to those at the mosque.
Police say they responded to reports of a disturbance shortly after noon on Friday, and though initial witness statements to news media said the suspect had a gun, that was not the case.
“Upon arrival, police encountered a man armed with a knife,” reads a statement. “The man was taken into custody with minor injuries and no one else was injured.”
