Court Appearance Made by Brandon Man Facing Charges Stemming from a Violent Incident in Russell

A new court date has been set for a Brandon man, charged in connection with a violent incident in Russell.

Russell RCMP were called in June of 2019, to a report of a 56-year-old man being assaulted, threatened, and having some of his belongings stolen.

While officers were on scene, the suspect returned, and resisted arrest, so Mounties had to use a taser to subdue him.

The suspect also caused damage to the Russell RCMP cell block.

40-year-old Michael Man faces numerous charges, and will return to Russell Provincial Court on August 25th.
