A Portage la Prairie man is facing multiple weapons charges after being arrested last week.

28-year-old Kiefer Beaulieu is facing charges of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Portage RCMP were patrolling Royal Road North near Saskatchewan Avenue just before midnight last Wednesday.

Officers recognized Beaulieu, knowing he was bound by a court ordered curfew. He attempted to conceal his face and escape. As a result, he was also charged with resisting arrest.

Police found he had two kitchen knives in his possession.

He was scheduled to appear in court last Thursday.
