Police have arrested four individuals in relation to a wild party last month in East St. Paul. RCMP have also now released photos of two individuals who were present at the party and may have information that could further assist the investigation.

On October 29th, RCMP officers from numerous detachments, including Oakbank, were called to a residence along Saddleridge Lane, in relation to a large party. As officers walked towards the main residence, a number of people jumped on two police vehicles, causing significant damage. 

Since that night, investigators have identified and arrested four individuals responsible for the damage to police vehicles. Three males, aged 18, 17 and 16, and a female, all from Winnipeg, were charged with mischief. They were released from custody and are scheduled to appear in court on March 7th.

A number of other suspects who were on the police vehicles have been positively identified through this investigation. RCMP are not releasing their names and photos at this time as officers are in the process of locating them to place them under arrest. Police say these individuals, widely and clearly captured on social media videos and police vehicle cameras, are encouraged to immediately contact RCMP and make arrangements to turn themselves in.

RCMP have released photos of two additional individuals, a male and female, who may have information that could further assist the investigation. Police are looking to identify these two individuals and speak with them. Anyone who may know, or has information about these two individuals is asked to call the Red River North RCMP Detachment at 204-482-1222, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com.

"We made it very clear that the behaviour exhibited that evening was unacceptable. We anticipate that every individual who took part in damaging police vehicles will be arrested and charged," says Superintendent John Duff, East District Commander for the Manitoba RCMP. "I have also reviewed video where a vile racial slur is directed at an RCMP officer. I have spoken with the officer and expressed my dismay that he had to endure such hateful language from those in attendance."

Officers also intervened and stopped a sexual assault that was about to occur. The two male suspects fled, and the victim was taken to hospital. This matter remains a priority for the RCMP and is under investigation.

Police say additional arrests are expected.
