The Portage la Prairie RCMP has arrested a man on an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

RCMP says on April 28th, around 3:30 p.m. an officer was making patrols and noticed a man on Lorne Avenue who had outstanding warrants. He then told 42-year-old Elie Whitford that he was under arrest.

Whitford then fled, but the officer was able to catch him before cuffing him after a struggle.

Whitford is charged with Resist Arrest and three counts of Failing to Comply with Release Order. He also has other charges before the courts.

He was held to appear in court the following day.
