Vancouver – A shoplifter charged with robbery and released on conditions earlier this week has been re-arrested by Vancouver Police after he threatened another man with a knife.
Early yesterday morning, the 23-year-old man was asked to leave private property near Burrard and Helmcken streets by a security guard. The suspect presented a knife to the security guard and threatened to stab him. Within minutes, officers arrived and arrested the suspect.
Cody Echlin has been charged with breaching his release order. He has been released pending his next court date.
Echlin was charged with robbery on January 3 after he pulled a knife on a grocery store employee who asked him to wear a mask.
