Winnipeg police Const. Rob Carver said Saturday that a man has been arrested after four people were injured when a vehicle reportedly drove through a group of protesters that were part of the “Freedom Convoy” demonstrating near the Manitoba legislature.
He said the vehicle fled from the area but police eventually stopped it and arrested the driver, who is facing multiple charges including assault. Three of the injured were treated on scene, and the fourth was treated at hospital but released.
Carver said he could not definitively speak to the motivation, but said that the driver made some comments that “tends to suggest that this was not specifically about the mandates.” He cautioned though they could not say for sure whether the comments could be relied upon, adding that the person was taken into custody with “some resistance.”
