A 17-year-old Brandon youth is facing charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and resisting arrest.
At 11 p.m. Saturday police received a report of two males drinking and smoking drugs in the downtown area. When located by police, the two males fled.
The youth resisted police attempts to take him into custody and two knives were found in his possession.
He was held overnight at the Brandon Correctional Centre due to intoxication and was released Sunday.
He is set to appear in court on Sept 15.
