  • Print

Portage la Prairie RCMP are still looking for a man after a home invasion last week.

The home invasion took place on Aug. 12 at approximately 10:30 p.m. Two males forced their way into a home and demanded money. Following a physical altercation with the resident, the two men fled the scene with various items.

The victim, a 34-year-old man, went to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 28-year-old Shane Rene Richard of Long Plain First Nation. Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Richard is asked to contact investigators at (204) 857-4445 or Manitoba Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 (TIPS).

Another suspect, 29-year-old Leslie James Sullivan, was located and arrested earlier this week.

Both men are facing numerous charges for their alleged involvement in the incident.
