One man is in custody after assaulting a Winkler Police Service officer.

On November 13, police were dispatched after a report of a violent male who was causing extensive damage inside a building and had assaulted several individuals.

When police arrived on scene they located the male who was behaving erratically. While police attempted to speak with the male, he proceeded to assault several officers and continued to damage property. The male then exited the building, and after a short foot pursuit, he was arrested and transported to the Winkler Police Service.

The male was charged with Mischief Over $5000, Obstructing a Peace Officer, four counts of Assault with a Weapon and three counts of Assaulting a Police Officer.

The male was remanded into custody to appear in Winnipeg Provincial Court the following day.
