A police dog helped Norway House RCMP track down a man who was reported to have committed an assault on Jan. 22.
Police were called to a residence on Jack River Road around 3 a.m. Friday after receiving a report that a man armed with a knife and a gun had assaulted a woman. The man had fled by the time police arrived and he had taken the victim with him.
The area was contained and police service dog Linkin and his handler were deployed along with a containment team. Linkin located a gun in the woods and he continued to track the suspect to a residence on Paupanekis Point Road, where the man was located inside a home and arrested.
A 21-year-old woman suffered minor injuries during the incident and a 25-year-old man is facing assault and weapons charges.
Norway House RCMP continue to investigate.
