Manitoba RCMP have a man in custody after an armed home invasion in the RM of St. Clements.

Just before midnight on August 6, a 911 operator received a call from a home on Cil Road and could hear someone demanding car keys before the call was dropped.

Officers in the area responded and found a vehicle from the home had been stolen.

They met with the 73-year-old female homeowner, who suffered a minor physical injury in the invasion. She told police the suspect was armed with a knife when he entered her home and fled in her vehicle.


Officers found the car abandoned nearby and tracked the suspect to a nearby business in the RM of East St. Paul.

Blake Andrew Morris, 43, from Winnipeg, was arrested and charged. He will appear in Selkirk court on August 26.

RCMP continue to investigate.
