Police situation resolved in central Abbotsford

Incident closed down Hillcrest Avenue

A busy central Abbotsford road was closed off Thursday morning (May 28) as heavily armed police dealt with a situation in a house.

Hillcrest Avenue between Parkview and Lynden streets was closed off around just before 11 a.m. and was reopened a little after noon.

A Facebook post from the Abbotsford Police said officers had visited the home to “check the well-being” of a person.

Police said the occupants of the home were refusing to communicate and cooperate with officers, and the road was closed until police could determine what they were dealing with.

A man who came out of the home was arrested on outstanding warrants and for breaching his release, police said.
