Man utters threats, points firearm at customers in Hamilton coffee shop

Hamilton police have arrested a 55-year-old man after he allegedly threatened customers at a local coffee shop over the weekend.

Police responded to a weapons call at the Tim Horton’s at 80 John St. South around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Investigators say a man pointed a firearm at two patrons in the restaurant while making threats.
