Selkirk man faces 12 charges after RCMP officer assaulted

A 33-year-old man is facing charges including assaulting a police officer and impaired driving following a violent incident in Selkirk, Man., last week.

In a news release Monday, RCMP said officers responded to a call about a stabbing at a residence on McLean Avenue in Selkirk around 4:45 p.m. on Thursday. Officers were informed a stabbing victim was clinging to the hood of a moving vehicle leaving Manitoba Avenue.

RCMP located a vehicle being driven erratically with a person on the hood. The vehicle swerved at the police car, almost causing a head-on collision, RCMP said.

Police deployed a Taser to arrest the suspect, whose behaviour was described as “combative.”

The officer received minor injuries. The stabbing victim, a 28-year-old man from Selkirk who was familiar with the suspect, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police make arrests on legislature grounds

There was a large police presence in front of the legislature building Monday as city police and provincial peace officers tried to prevent anti-government protesters from delivering more wooden teepee poles to the front of the building to erect a third teepee.

The demonstrators have been on site for months in an encampment with two teepees that they refer to as a “law lodge,” although Manitoba passed legislation June 1 prohibiting tents or encampments on the grounds for security reasons.

A sheriff’s department van carrying boisterous demonstrators left the legislature grounds Monday afternoon. Dozens of city police, provincial sheriff’s officers and Manitoba conservation officers remained on the grounds.
