Officers conducting a community patrol in the Jane and Finch area early Monday night seized a quantity of drugs after having a gun pointed at them.
It’s alleged that while officers were walking through one of the buildings, they smelled marijuana in the hallway and began to investigate a group of men in the area.
It’s further alleged one of the men assaulted an officer, and when they tried to make an arrest, he struggled with them and pulled a gun out of the bag he was carrying.
Officers knocked the firearm out of his hand and arrested him.
Rodrigues Sendia is facing twelve charges including assault, resisting arrest, as well as gun and drug related offences.
Officers also found and seized a loaded Mosserg 715T .22 calibre rifle in the building, which they say is not related to the 18 year old.
