CTV News reported that the man forcibly entered the building while there was one Tim Hortons employee inside.

He reportedly kicked the glass door until it smashed and stole the staff member's phone when he got inside. 

When the employee tried to call the police via the landline in the back, the man shut off the building's power.

When officers got there, the man was locked in a storage room and refusing to comply. 

He even shot a fire extinguisher at police from under the door. 

Eventually, officers got inside the room and a police dog helped apprehend the guy.

He was charged with break-and-enter offences and assault on both a police officer and a police dog
