A Sioux Valley Dakota Nation man was arrested in the wee hours of Christmas morning after assaulting his common-law wife.
The 32-year-old man was apprehended just after 2 a.m. Wednesday. The victim had been struck in the face and required medical attention.
She was treated and released from the Brandon Regional Health Centre.
The accused was lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre, and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 27.
Meanwhile, four other arrests were made in the 24 hours leading up to Christmas — three for either breach of the peace or public intoxication and one on a warrant.
