Runaway found in bush

Roblin RCMP say the family of a runaway 10-year-old has found the boy.

Tyrone Alexander Podollan was found at about 9:45 a.m. Friday, uninjured in a small bushy area near where he was last seen by his family two days earlier, RCMP said Friday.

RCMP said the area had already been searched, but the boy didn't stay in one place.

Podollan ran away from home on Wednesday at about noon, but the family didn't report him missing until the next day, when RCMP launched a search.

RCMP thanked the many volunteers and departments who helped in the search.

Returned deportee jailed

A South American man who was caught in Canada after having been deported has been sentenced to nine months in jail.

Raul Roberto Kalbfleisch pleaded guilty to one count of returning to Canada without authorization in provincial court in Winnipeg on Thursday.

The Canadian Border Services Agency said it charged Kalbfleisch in February after he was arrested by RCMP under a different identity.

The border agency said Kalb-fleisch was deported in 1995 because of his criminal record but returned to Canada illegally in 1999.

Agency spokeswoman Lisa White said privacy rules prevent her from saying which country Kalb-fleisch is from, but she did narrow it down to South America.

Kalbfleisch will be deported again when his sentence is completed, White said.

Kalbfleisch had seven convictions in Canada when he was deported in 1995, including one for robbery that netted a five-year prison sentence.

The border agency said his real identity was discovered when police checked his fingerprints.

Boys assault, rob man

A 10-year-old boy and three teens under 16 were taken into custody after a man was forced into his East Kildonan residence early Thursday, where he was assaulted and robbed.

The 10-year-old boy was released with no charges. The law states a person under 12 can't be charged.

About 1:30 a.m. Thursday, the 24-year-old man was outside his home in the 1000 block of Moncton Avenue when he was confronted by four boys.

They demanded he hand over a personal electronic device, then forced him into his residence, police said.

Three of them followed him, while the fourth remained outside. Two assaulted the man and then all four fled with an undisclosed amount of property.

The victim was not injured, police said.

The same day, police located two suspects near Regent Avenue and Plessis Road, and two others later in the day.

Two teens, aged 13 and 15, face a raft of charges, including break and enter, assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. The other 13-year-old boy is facing a break-and-enter charge.

Weapons charges laid

A 16-year-old is in custody after he was arrested for walking around the North End with a rifle.

Police said they were contacted at about 12:40 a.m. Friday morning about someone walking in the 400 block of College Avenue carrying a rifle.

Police took a teen into custody and he faces several weapon-related charges, including possession of a weapon obtained by crime and four counts of failing to comply with the terms of sentencing provisions.
