For the last 24 hours:

Garage Break and Enter

On Saturday, officers attended a garage break and enter, which had occurred overnight in the Valleyview area. Stolen were two pedal bikes, one Giant Talon adult mountain bike, black and blue in colour, and a child’s Nakamara Agyl grey bike.

Assault with a Weapon

At 6:30 p.m. Saturday, police were called to a disturbance in the downtown area. Two people from Brandon met with a 37-year-old male suspect also from the city, who had posted a bike for sale on a social media site using a false name and account. That bike had been stolen from the two people’s yard earlier in the day. The suspect when contacted advised the couple that he had sold the bike, but had a bike carrier for sale and would meet them to sell the carrier. When the victims confronted the suspect about the stolen bike during the meet, he ran and was pursued by both of them. The suspect turned on the two people and produced an expandable baton, which he began swinging in their direction in an attempt to strike them. Police located the suspect nearby and took him into custody. The expandable baton was recovered and the suspect was released for court in Brandon in August. He faces a single charge of assault with a weapon.

Domestic Assaults

At 3:00 p.m. Saturday, police attended a domestic disturbance at a residence in the west end of the city. Investigation revealed that a 20-year-old male from Brandon had assaulted his girlfriend by punching her in the stomach. The suspect is currently on several court-imposed conditions to have no contact or communication with the victim, due to a previous domestic assault he allegedly committed against her. Police are opposed to his release and he was held in custody to appear before a Justice today. He is charged with one count of assault and one count of breach of a release order.

At 9:10 p.m. Saturday, police attended a domestic disturbance in the west end of the city. Investigation found alcohol to be a contributing factor to the initial disagreement, which then escalated to the point where one person stabbed the other in the leg with a pair of scissors. A 29-year-old male from Brandon was arrested and charged with one count of assault, and was released on conditions to have no contact or communication with his partner.  A 21-year-old male also from Brandon, who armed himself with the scissors and stabbed the 29 year old, was held in cells overnight for release later today when sober. He is facing a single charge of assault with a weapon, and will also be on conditions to have no contact or communication with his partner. Both will appear in court in August.

Stolen Vehicle

At 9:15 a.m. today, police received a report of a vehicle stolen overnight, between 10 p.m. Saturday and 8:50 a.m. today. The vehicle is a white 2005 Ford F250, extended cab, Manitoba license plate CGY 475, with a yellow and white decal on both sides of the truck doors that reads “Parkline Solutions.”
