t approx. 4:30 Friday afternoon, members were called to the area of Willowdale Cres for a male knocking on windows and checking doors.  The caller believed the male was holding something in his hand that appeared to be a bike lock.  The caller was concerned he may use the item to gain entry through a window.  Members attended to the area and located the male in the bushes to the north side of Willowdale Cres.  The 16-year-old Brandon male was found to be the subject of an outstanding warrant for assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon, and carrying a concealed weapon.  At the time he was arrested he was holding a set of brass knuckles, which are prohibited. He was therefore also arrested for possession of a prohibited weapon.  The male was held at BPS overnight and will appear in court this morning.
