A 28-year old Port Alberni man faces 38 charges after an alleged robbery attempt.
Early Sunday morning, Port Alberni RCMP responded to an alleged robbery in a residence in the 2500 block of 2nd Ave.
They say Matthew Burke got into an altercation with a 55 year old Port Alberni man, threatened him with a knife and demanded money.
While the victim went to hospital with an injured hand, police say they tracked down Burke and he attempted to assult the arresting officers.
He makes his first court appearance today to face 24 charges from Port Alberni and another 14 charges including robbery and assault with a weapon out of Fort Nelson.
