A man is in custody after a person was stabbed, a home was set on fire, and an armed stand-off with police ended with an arrest in Peguis First Nation.

A 53-year-old man in Peguis First Nation was sent to hospital with serious injuries after he was stabbed Sunday night. Fisher Branch RCMP believe the 46-year-old suspect was known to the victim.

The next day, RCMP found the suspect in a home on Peguis First Nation at around 4 p.m. He was armed and barricaded himself inside the home. Not long after, officers noticed the home was on fire and crews were called.

Officers then noticed the man lying on the ground just outside of the resident and he was arrested without incident. He was hospitalized but released shortly after.

The man has been charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, arson, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and theft of a motor vehicle. He remains in custody.

The site of an armed stand-off, and later a fire, that ended with an arrest of a man also charged with a stabbing the day before.
