Last week the Dauphin RCMP responded to a call of a man in a house with a knife, but he fled on foot before police got there. They found 30-year-old Kyle Sutherland nearby, and when they approached him, he pulled out the knife. The confrontation ended with Sutherland being tased and safely arrested.

Sutherland made his second court appearance in Dauphin yesterday, where he admitted to the charges and was sentenced to six months in jail, with a ten-year weapons ban.
