Pembina Valley RCMP respond to unwanted person complaint

Elm Creek, Manitoba – On June 2, 2023, at 5:25 pm, Pembina Valley RCMP received a complaint of an unwanted person at an address, located on Main Street, in Elm Creek, Manitoba and that the suspect was reported to still be inside.

Officers attended and met with the landlord of the property who advised that the suspect, later identified as a 41-year-old male from Headingley, had barricaded himself in the upstairs bedroom and was believed to be intoxicated and possibly armed with a weapon.

Contact was made with the suspect who made indirect threats to harm any officers who approached him. Officers were unable to determine if he was in possession of a weapon so contact was established through the second storey window of the residence.

Over the span of a couple of hours, and with assistance of an RCMP negotiator, the suspect was arrested without incident. No injuries were reported.

He was taken into custody and released the following morning for court scheduled August 17, 2023, in Morden, where he will face a charge of Mischief.
