Garage Break and Enter 

A garage in the 800 block of 14th St. was broken into sometime Thursday night/Friday morning. A set of golf clubs in a Philadelphia Flyers golf bag were stolen.


Domestic Assault/Arrest Warrant Executed

At noon Thursday, police attended to a report of a disturbance in a business parking lot in the 1100 block of 18th Street.  It was found that a female had escaped from a vehicle there, and fled from her boyfriend who had assaulted her over the previous 12 hours.  The accused had choked, punched and slapped the victim, and refused to let her leave their residence during which time he also threatened to kill her.  At some point, the couple left their residence in Rivers where the female was being held against her will and attended to Brandon together.  It was while they were in Brandon that police first became aware of this matter when BPS were called to the 1100 block of 18th Street.  After the victim escaped the vehicle in the parking lot, the accused attempted to regain control of her but was scared off by a passerby.  The accused then fled the area.  A warrant of arrest had been issued for the accused, Matthew Brian Dickenson, age 26 years, of Rivers, MB, as police were not able to locate him.  Dickenson was located by Rivers Police Service and arrested. He was transported to the Brandon Correctional Centre where he will appear in court this morning charged with Assault, Uttering Threats to Cause Death, Forcible Confinement, Choking to Overcome Resistance and Take a Motor Vehicle Without the Owner’s Consent.     


Stolen Vehicle vs. Transit Bus/Building Motor Vehicle Collision 

At approx. 3:30 PM, police received a report that a 2011 Lincoln MKS had been stolen from a residence in the 300 blk of 4th St.  The stolen vehicle was traveling East on Princess Ave. moments later when it went through a red light at 10th St. and Princess Ave. and struck a Northbound transit bus, causing it to strike a building at the north-west corner of the intersection. The collision with the building caused structural damage and the bus had to be left in there overnight to prevent the possible collapse of the building. Residents of an upstairs residence had to be relocated due to safety concerns. Remediation work has taken place and it is expected that the bus will be moved today.


A twelve-year-old Brandon resident will appear in court this morning charged with Theft of a Motor Vehicle and numerous Highway Traffic Offences. 


Sexual Assault 

At 3:45 PM, police were called to a downtown restaurant after a female attended there asking for help. The investigation revealed that the female victim had been at the Greyhound bus depot when she was approached by a man who began making sexual comments to her. She left the bus depot and was walking away when the man approached, pushed her against a wall and sexually assaulted her. She fled to the restaurant and police were contacted. A twenty-six-year-old Gladstone man was arrested in the area and will appear in court this morning charged with Sexual Assault.
