A man has been charged after a weapons-related incident in the Fairview area.

Halifax Regional Police say early Sunday morning, officers were called to an Evans Avenue apartment where they found a man inside with a hatchet.

Police deployed a sensory irritant when he first refused to leave.

He then came out of the apartment and police arrested him, seizing a hatchet and a replica firearm.

A 36-year-old man is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
