A man accused of assaulting his girlfriend early yesterday morning already had a warrant out for his arrest.
Police say they were called to the 800-block of First Street North for a domestic dispute just after 4 a.m. on Wednesday. They arrested the 21-year-old man for assault and say that his girlfriend had minor injuries to her upper body, but didn’t require medical attention.
However, they also turned up an arrest warrant for the man issued by the Swan River RCMP, who wanted him for theft under $5,000.
He was jailed overnight, but was to be released with conditions on Wednesday morning, with a court date in Brandon of July 28.
