No bail for man accused of grabbing knife, chasing niece

Bail has been denied for a man accused of arming himself with a knife and chasing his niece.

An account of the frightening allegations were shared during a bail hearing in Brandon court on Monday.

Crown attorney Yaso Mathu said that the victim called 911 early Saturday morning to report that her uncle had a kitchen knife and was trying to stab people in a Brandon home.

The victim would later tell police that she and her drunk uncle were having an argument when he grabbed a knife from the kitchen and chased her into the living room.

He then hovered over her, knife in hand, and asked her: “Do you want to die?”

The victim’s mother managed to take the knife from the man, who told the mom he would kill the victim.

He then grabbed another knife and was about to chase the victim upstairs, but at that moment police arrived.

Officers arrived to find the man at the front door with a knife.

He dropped the blade after numerous demands by police, slowly exited the home and was taken to the ground and handcuffed.

Police learned that the man was under a number of release orders that forbid him from having weapons, and from drinking alcohol or taking other intoxicants.

The above allegations haven’t been proven in court.

Kirsten Raymond Daniels, 36, is charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and with breaching orders.

Judge John Combs denied him bail on Monday and his next court date has been set for next week.
