Brandon Police Service Media Release

At approximately 10:20 PM Tuesday evening, Officers attended to a residence in the 1200 block of 5th St for a male causing a disturbance in the home and refusing to leave. Upon arrival, the male had already fled the residence and was no longer in the area.  At approximately 10:30 PM, a male matching his description was seen in the 500 block of 10th St.  When officers checked the male, he initially provided a false name.  When his identity was confirmed it was determined that he is currently the subject of an outstanding warrant for breaching his recognizance order and failing to attend for fingerprints.  A search subject to arrest resulted in the location of a knife concealed in his chest pocket, which is another breach of his recognizance, as he is not to possess weapons.  The 22-year-old Rolling River male was lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre, he will appear in court on these charges as well as public mischief, for providing the false name, later this morning.
