A man entered Winnipeg police headquarters, doused himself in a flammable liquid and tried to set himself alight Wednesday morning, police say.
Shortly after 11:30 a.m., a man entered the public area of the police station and poured a "substantial amount" of the flammable substance on himself, police said.
Police evacuated the area and officers at the front desk and prevented the liquid from lighting up. The man was taken into custody.
The duty office will be closed to the public for the rest of the day.
