When they arrived, they found a female suffering from serious upper body injuries. 

She was eventually airlifted to the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg where she is listed in critical condition.

Another court appearance has been made by a Swan River man arrested in connection with two seperate incidents at the same home. 

37-year-old Jeremy Gingras was in Dauphin Court this week, where he was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on February 7th.

Just before midnight on September 24th, Mounties say a man broke into a home, assaulted a man, and stole a cell phone and bicycle.

The next morning, the same suspect broke into that same home, smashing several items, and stealing a hammer going to a Main Street business, where he allegedly smashed two parked vehicles, and windows of the business, with flying glass injuring a female employee.

Another case of Chronic Wasting Disease has been recorded in Manitoba, this time, in the south-central area near Winkler.

While this disease isn't currently known to be a danger to humans, hunters in areas where it's observed are recommended to proceed with caution.

CWD spreads through bodily fluids directly, or indirectly through contaminated water and there is growing concern for cervid populations in Manitoba, considering the amount of fresh water in the province.

Hunters in the Affected areas are asked to submit samples from the deer they killed to help monitor this disease before it became endemic to the province.

A Swan River man arrested six days after a violent home invasion in that town made an initial court appearance this week.

Alex Ames was remanded back into custody until his next court appearance on February 2nd.

Back on January 13th of this year, a male suspect is alleged to have broken into a home and assaulted a 39-year-old woman, who was sleeping in the home with her infant child at the time.

The suspect then threatened the victim with a firearm and stole money, possessions, and keys before leaving the scene. 

The child was not hurt during the incident. 

A 2021 drug bust in the RM of Dauphin continues to slowly make its way through the court system.

In March of that year, Mounties pulled over a vehicle about ten kilometres west of Ochre River on Highway 5, and arrested the driver after he refused to give a breath sample.

A search of the vehicle led to the seizure of a large variety of cannabis products, about 195 grams of cocaine, cash, and an open bottle of liquor.

32-year-old Jory Rowe of Winnipeg made another appearance in court in the provincial capital this week. 

And once again, the case was recessed until next Tuesday. 

Manitoba's Premier came to Dauphin today to announce a plan of expansion for the Dauphin Regional Health Center.

In a press conference today, Premier Wab Kinew, joined by Minister Ron Kostyshyn, and Minister Uzoma Asagwara announced plans to expand the DHRC's capacity and their cancer care efforts.

The Dauphin Health Center has recently seen expansions in its cancer care ward and endoscopy units, and Kinew says more is on the way.

"In addition to the specific services that I'm talking about here, at the Dauphin Health Center, we'll be adding 9 new beds. This is going to be a significant enhancement in inpatient capacity and it's one helps the folks that need access to those beds, but it also helps the over facility to run more efficiently"

These nine new beds would also include the staffing to maintain them.

Premier Kinew also noted that more training programs for nursing, similar to the one provided through the Assiniboine Community College in Neepawa, are on the way to work toward increasing the number of rural healthcare workers.

As well, the Premier offered an insight into what's next in this plan, which could look like a bridging program through ACC that could let practical nurses upgrade to Registered nurses online.

Swan River RCMP officers are on the lookout for a vehicle that was trying to lure two young girls earlier this week.

On January 22, while the girls aged 10 and 12 were walking home from school in Benito, a suspicious vehicle drove by them and the driver motioned to them to approach the vehicle. The vehicle did not come to a stop and the girls ignored the driver and continued to walk. The vehicle then drove away.

The driver is described as a male with dark curly hair, driving in a dark-coloured SUV with an unknown Ontario license plate. Officers did patrol the area in Benito following the report; however, they were unable to locate it. 

If anyone has any information about this vehicle, please contact the Swan River RCMP at (204) 734-4686, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or submit a secure tip online at Crime Stoppers.
