Way to go, PIO

Interesting – no, downright unusual – addition to the official police release today:

HOMICIDE RE-ARREST C09-69343As previously released, on April 10th, 2009, at approximately 6:00 p.m., uniformed members were dispatched to the area of Sargent Avenue and Young Street regarding a male being assaulted.

 It is alleged that a twenty-seven year old male confronted a 60 year old male and began to assault him to the upper body. The victim was subsequently pushed to the ground at which time the assault continued. Upon arriving, officers located both males.

 The suspect was taken into custody. The victim, identified as Evaristo CANIUMAN was conveyed to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

 Twenty-seven year old Joseph William MCNABB of Winnipeg has been charged with Manslaughter. On August 31, 2009 MCNABB was released by the Courts.

Since his release MCNABB has failed to comply with conditions of his release on two occasions. On January 10, 2010 MCNABB failed to comply with conditions of his Recognizance and was subsequently arrested by police. 

On April 13, 2010 was once again released by the courts.

 On August 23, 2010, MCNABB failed to comply with conditions of his Recognizance and a Warrant was issued for his arrest. 

On August 24, 2010, MCNABB was located and arrested in the downtown area.     He has been detained in custody.

It looks like the department is finally getting it: citizens need to know this stuff.
