A 30-year-old from Dakota Tipi First Nation is facing charges of Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose.

Portage la Prairie RCMP received a report on September 16th, just after 5 p.m., that a man was walking around the First Nation with an edged weapon. Police arrived and arrested him without incident.

The suspect was released conditionally, and he is set to appear in court at a later date.
