On June 9, officers arrested 31-year-old Momokai Massaquoi of Toronto in connection with the incident. He was arrested in Scarborough by Toronto police.

Massaquoi was charged with two counts of assault with a weapon, and one count of breach of recognizance.

Police say he was transported to Orillia, and is scheduled to appear in court in Barrie June 13.
