Assault Peace Officer – Arrest: C18-192732
On September 3, 2018, at approximately 8:40 a.m., Central District General Patrol officers responded to the 600 block of William Avenue for a report of a male on the roof throwing bricks onto the street.
Upon arrival, officers attempted to speak with the male who was visibly agitated, exhibiting erratic behavior, and at times throwing bricks at officers. It is believed the male had consumed methamphetamine prior to this incident.
Due to the male's unwillingness to cooperate with police and concerns surrounding his health, Crisis Negotiators, Tactical Support Team members, and the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service were called to assist.
During the seven-hour incident, the male continued to exhibit erratic behavior, throwing bricks from a chimney at first responders on the ground.  At one point, the male jumped onto the roof of a neighboring building where he continued to yell, scream and throw rocks at vehicles, apartment windows and emergency responders on the street.
At approximately 3:20 p.m., Tactical Support Team members were able to make contact with the male and safely remove him from the rooftop. He was transported to hospital, treated for minor injuries and later released.
During the incident, six officers and three members of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service narrowly missed being struck by bricks and rocks. Two vehicles sustained significant damage. Three residential windows were broken and numerous bricks were removed from a chimney.
Christopher Robert BARON, a 40-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with:

  • Assault Peace Officers X6
  • Assault with a Weapon X3
  • Mischief Under X6 

He was detained in custody.
