An Officer has sustained minor injuries after being assaulted by a 44-year-old man from Portage la Prairie.

Last Saturday, Portage RCMP received a report of an intoxicated man at a business in the 900 block of Saskatchewan Avenue East.

The suspect refused to leave the business and threatened an individual there.

An officer located the suspect not far away and spoke to him. The suspect was uncooperative with the officer and was then told that he was under arrest.

The suspect then assaulted the officer. The officer was able to place handcuffs on the suspect after a brief struggle, at which time the 44-year-old man from Portage la Prairie became compliant with the officer's demands.

Kirsten Daniels is charged with:

  • Uttering Threats,  
  • Carrying a Concealed Weapon,  
  • Possession of Weapon for Dangerous Purpose,  
  • Mischief Under $5000.00,  
  • Resisting Arrest and Assaulting a Peace Officer.  

Daniels was remanded into custody to appear in Court on May 2nd.
