Brandon Police Service Media Release for the Past 24 Hours.

Domestic Assault

At 730 am on Monday morning, officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence in the 1500 block of Lorne Ave.  A woman reported in a 911 call that she was assaulted by her ex-boyfriend who then left the apartment.  Officers transported the woman to Brandon Regional Health Center for treatment of a cut to her head.  Officers followed footprints in the snow leading away from the residence and located the suspect hiding in a back yard under a stairway.  A 35 year old man from Brandon was arrested for Assault and appeared in court later in the day.

Dangerous Driving

On Monday afternoon, BPS received several complaints of a vehicle driving erratically and dangerously in the city.  No license plate was obtained from these complaints.  A complaint was then received from a gas station on Highland Ave reporting the driver of the same vehicle description had committed a theft of gas and drove away. The license plate of the vehicle, a grey Nissan truck, was provided.  Officers attended to the residence related to the vehicle and spoke with the owner who indicated his son had the vehicle and that he may be experiencing some mental health issues. The vehicle was then located parked in the 500 block of Princess Ave with a male driver.  A police unit pulled behind the vehicle and activated emergency lights.  As the officer exited his vehicle, the suspect truck sped off.  As the driver of the vehicle went through a red light and was displaying unsafe driving practices, the officer did not pursue the vehicle.

Officers monitored the suspect vehicle from distance and lost sight of it on 18th St.  Another officer located the vehicle at 18th St and Richmond Ave where it had spun out of control.  The officer blocked oncoming traffic with his police cruiser and the suspect ran into the police cruiser as he sped away again, going the wrong direction down Richmond Ave for several blocks.  Officers continued to monitor the vehicle from a distance and when it was observed entering a bay off of Queens Ave East, an attempt was made to box the vehicle in however the driver evaded the police units and struck another police cruiser.

The suspect truck proceeded north on First St and collided with at least two other vehicles.  Due to the ongoing threat to public safety, officers attempted to use a spike belt to disable the vehicle at 1st St and McTavish Ave.  While the belt did not have the desired effect, the truck was briefly hung up on the median and three police cruisers boxed in the vehicle to prevent the driver from leaving.

Officers removed the suspect from the truck and he continued to resist, fighting with the officers.  A Taser was deployed and the driver was arrested.

The suspect, a 47 year old man from Brandon, was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and will appear in court on Tuesday morning.  A  psychiatric assessment is also anticipated. The driver of the suspect vehicle collided with several vehicles in traffic, who have contacted police. If there are any other motorists who were involved in a collision as a result of this, please contact BPS.
