Winnipeg police arrest chainsaw-wielding suspect attacking drivers, cyclist

A Winnipeg man is facing charges after police say a man walked onto the Disraeli Freeway swinging a chainsaw at drivers over the lunch hour Thursday.

Police say it all started around noon when a man walked up to two arborists who were working in the area of the Disraeli Freeway and Lily Street.

After a short conversation, police say without warning, the man threatened the pair with a large metal object before picking up one of the worker’s chainsaws and started it up.

The two arborists fled to a vehicle while the man allegedly throttled the chainsaw and started attacking the arborists’ vehicle.
