A break and enter suspect in Portage la Prairie realized his escape route was a dud Sunday morning, when police had to rescue him from a tunnel.
RCMP said they were called to a home on Westco Drive in Portage la Prairie around 8:30 a.m., after receiving a report of a man who had broken in and was threatening the people inside.
By the time police arrived, the suspect had already left, and was last seen headed west through a field.
After officers managed to remove him from the tunnel, he was charged with breaking and entering, uttering threats, and resisting arrest. Police also charged him in connection with an earlier assault incident that day, in which they said he also ran from police.
The man remains in custody.
