Several Powerview RCMP officers and one adult female sustained injuries Monday night.

At approximately 9:55 p.m., officers received a report of an assault that happened at a residence on Highway 11 in the RM of Alexander.

Immediately going to the residence, officers located an adult female outside who was seriously injured and an adult male holding a young child. Determining the male was the suspect, he ran into the residence with the child when officers approached him. 

The agitated and erratic male refused to hand the child over to family members and police, threatening them.

When the suspect put the child down, officers quickly grabbed and brought her to safety. The suspect rushed towards officers and a Conducted Energy Weapon was deployed but had no effect.  

The suspect assaulted the officers by biting and punching them before running out the back of the residence into a shed. 

Officers called for backup and Police Dog Services. K9, Mack, entered the shed with officers and located the hiding suspect who was combative. When officers were placing him in custody, the suspect assaulted officers by biting, punching, and kicking. 

The suspect was arrested, placed into custody, and taken to hospital as a precaution. 

The child was not physically injured during the incident. The adult female suffered serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital and later transported to Winnipeg for further treatment. 

Several officers sustained minor injuries. One officer was treated and released in hospital.

A 36-year-old male faces a lengthy list of charges including attempted murder, assault on a peace officer causing bodily harm, uttering threats, resisting arrest, and mischief. 

He was remanded into custody. The suspect will not be named to protect those who were victims in this incident.

Powerview RCMP continues to investigate.
