Suspects still in police custody

A man who faces nine charges after staff and patients were terrorized at the Russell Health Centre remains in custody.

Court documents also indicate that he faces previous unrelated charges, some of which date back more than a decade.

RCMP said they were called to the health centre around 5 p.m. on Tuesday for a report of a violent patient.

Police allege that the man attacked a doctor, a number of nurses and a young girl. He also chased a child and threatened other patients, RCMP said in a press release issued on Wednesday.

It’s also alleged that the man assaulted an RCMP officer and was shocked with a stun gun to bring him under control.

Substance abuse was believed to have been a factor in the incident, police said.

Craig Allan Huntinghawk, 43, of the Waywayseecappo First Nation, faces nine charges in relation to events of Jan. 1.

Those include aggravated assault, assaulting a peace officer, two other counts of assault, mischief, failing to abide by a bail order and uttering threats.

Huntinghawk didn’t personally appear in Brandon court on Thursday as his case was remanded to Jan. 17. He remains in custody.

No further details were presented in court, but the aggravated assault charge alleges that a female’s life had somehow been put in danger.

Huntinghawk also faces charges that date from prior to the health centre incident.

He’s accused of failing to report to probation between Sept. 11, 2012 and Oct. 19, 2012.

In addition — even though court documents indicate that a judge put him on probation as recently as September 2012, and that he allegedly missed a court date as recently as December 2012 — he still faces outstanding charges that date back more than 15 years.

Those consistof breach of probation and assault causing bodily harm from May 1997 out of Minnedosa, and a fail to attend court allegation that dates from July 1997.

At least one arrest warrant was issued in July 1997 due to the missed court date.
