Coun. Dave Loken will not face criminal charges after Edmonton police investigated an alleged altercation he had with a challenger for his Ward 3 seat.
The incident happened last Saturday at a community event in Castle Downs Park.
Sarmad Rasheed alleged Loken came to his booth, pointed a finger at him and threatened him.
Loken said he approached Rasheed to tell him he was breaking a city bylaw by having campaign signs on city property.
He denied he touched Rasheed or threatened him.
Police investigated after Rasheed filed a complaint. A police spokeswoman said Friday that no charges will be laid and that the investigation has been closed.
The municipal election will be held on Oct. 16.
