Man charged in New Year’s Eve standoff back in Brandon Court

A Sioux Valley Dakota First Nation man, arrested early New Year’s Day, has appeared in court again.

On New Year’s Eve, Virden RCMP were called to a home on the reserve, about a man armed with a knife, threatening the residents of a home.

The suspect fled and barricaded himself in another home, before police gained entry and placed him under arrest.

42-year-old Bruce Branth was in Brandon Court yesterday (Tue), where he was remanded in custody to February 10th.
