Conducted Electrical Weapon Recovered Update - Male Arrested-
As previously released - On September 3, 2016 at approximately 2:25 a.m., a Winnipeg Police general patrol unit was in the area of Rorie Street and Bannatyne Avenue when a large number of individuals were observed to be causing a disturbance and fighting.
While attempting to disperse the crowd, two officers located an injured adult male in the area of the 1st 100 block of Bannatyne Avenue. Attempts to administer first aid were hindered by a crowd that began to obstruct the officers.
At this time, individuals from within the crowd started to assault the officers which resulted in a Conducted Electrical Weapon (Taser) being deployed and discharged. As the struggle continued, the Taser was dropped and officers attempted to return to the victim to continue first aid.
Members of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service attended a short time later and the victim was transported to hospital.
It was believed that the Taser was stolen during the incident.
As a result, the Winnipeg Police Service advised the public of the potential risks associated to the Taser in our community.
On September 24, 2016 at approximately 2:00 a.m., a male in possession of a Taser attended outside the 100 block of Bannatyne Avenue and began confronting a large group people.
The suspect activated the Taser causing the crowd to disperse. He eventually fled the area in a vehicle and police were notified. No one was injured.
As a result of the investigation, the suspect was identified and located in a suite on Mayfair Place.   
As previously indicated, Division 11 general patrol members recovered the previously stolen Taser and arrested a male due to his alleged involvement.
