Regional police have made an arrest following a traffic stop in Kitchener.

The stop was initiated in the area of Fourth Avenue and Wilson Avenue around 9:15 p.m. on June 24, after members of the Direct Action Response Team of Waterloo Regional Police observed suspicious activity at a townhouse complex in the city.

Police allege the driver provided false information about who they were. 

Officers also determined the driver was wanted by police here and in Guelph on outstanding warrants.

When police attempted to arrest the driver, the male attempted to assault officers and fled on foot. The suspect was arrested after a brief chase on foot.

A 29-year-old Kitchener man has been charged with obstructing police and assaulting police with intent to resist arrest - in addition to the outstanding warrants. 

The accused was held in custody for a bail hearing.
