A 16-year-old Dauphin youth is facing charges an RCMP officer was punched in the face.
The incident occurred on Friday at 9:30 p.m., when Dauphin RCMP on patrol observed a group of youths walking on 6th Avenue S.W. in the western Manitoba community. The officers recognized one of the youths was on probation with a curfew.
As RCMP attempted to arrest the suspect, he allegedly took a swing at one of the officers, striking him in the face. A brief chase ensued and officers eventually took the youth back into custody.
The suspect is facing charges of assaulting a peace officer, resisting arrest and breach of probation. He is scheduled to appear in court today.
