Manitoba RCMP say a man who was considered armed and dangerous – prompting an emergency alert to be sent out – has been safely arrested and is in custody.

Late Wednesday evening, RCMP said 38-year-old Wesley Manfred Wadien had been arrested without incident in the RM of Rockwood.

RCMP Superintendent Rob Lasson said Mounties were called to a report of a person in Selkirk pointing a firearm on Tuesday afternoon.

"Unfortunately at that time, the individual evaded police and we were not able to apprehend the individual at that time," Lasson said.

He said police encountered Wadien again on Wednesday, but he was again able to get away.

Mounties had put out an emergency alert earlier Wednesday evening, warning the public that Wadien was considered an immediate threat, and was considered armed and dangerous.

"The RCMP in Manitoba wanted to ensure that all public were well informed of the potential risk that this individual posed due to the unpredictable behaviour he displayed towards police throughout the last two days," Lasson said.

RCMP previously said Wadien was wanted for uttering threats and pointing a firearm, along with multiple other arrest warrants.

None of the charges have been proven in court.
