Portage la Prairie RCMP have arrested a man after an assault with a taser in a residence on 18th Street NW.
Around 12 a.m. Thursday officers responded to a report of an assault at a residence, and upon arrival found the door had been kicked in and a man had been assaulted with a taser, RCMP said Friday.
The investigation determined the suspect had entered the home while a man and woman slept upstairs. When the man, 32, went downstairs to see what was happening, he was tased and the suspect fled, RCMP said. The victim, who knew the suspect, sustained minor injuries, RCMP added.
Brandon Pratt, 31, of MacGregor has been charged with breaking and entering, weapons offences and a failure to comply with release orders. He has been released pending a court date, RCMP said.
