Manitoba RCMP have laid weapons charges against two men after they allegedly chased another man in the community in Fairford.

Police received a report of a vehicle chasing another vehicle early on September 22. When officers from the Gypsumville detachment arrived in Fairford, they met the victim at a local gas station after he was forced to stop.

Police say after the victim pulled over, one of the suspects pointed a long-barrelled gun at him and made a threat. Both suspects then sped off.

The 21-year-old victim had two young children in the vehicle at the time, say police.

The suspects were spotted heading north on Highway 6 from Ashern about two hours later and returned to Fairford. Officers believed the men to be intoxicated and found them exiting a residence in the area.

They were both arrested and a search warrant was executed later in the day at the residence. Officers seized four rifles, one shotgun, one pistol and ammunition.

Kurt Woodford, 54, and Cory Sumner, 39, both from Fairford, face multiple charges, including assault and assault with a weapon.

Both men appeared in Winnipeg court on Monday and remain in custody.
