RCMP in the RM of Springfield are investigating a home invasion that around 5:50 am on Thursday August 26, 2021.
Police say a 27-year-old male from Winnipeg had broken into a home on Oakwood Road armed with a knife. He is known to the residents of the home. A struggle between the suspect and a 66-year-old male resulted in the senior being injured. A 58-year-old female intervened and was able to disarm the suspect giving the family the chance to escape the residence and contact the police.
The suspect barricaded himself inside the home for a brief time but officers who had responded to the scene were able to talk him out of the house and take him into custody.
The 66-year-old male, 58-year-old female and a 24-year-old female were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The male suspect was detained in custody pending charges.
