A 22-year-old man who threatened employees with a toy handgun at a city business last year has been granted a 60-day extension for the preparation of a pre-sentence report, which will include a psychological component to assess his risk and to identify any possible illness.

David Guenther Krahn pleaded guilty in November to two charges of uttering threats to cause death and one charge of pointing a firearm. Additional charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon and use of a firearm in the commission of an offence, were withdrawn.

Krahn made a brief appearance in Lethbridge provincial court Thursday morning, via closed-circuit TV from the Lethbridge Correctional Centre. He has been in custody since he was arrested in October.

The case will return to court on March 31.
