A 27-year-old Winnipeg man is in custody after an armed and barricaded incident at a home on Oakwood Road in the RM of Springfield.

Oakbank RCMP said the Winnipeg man, who was known to homeowners, broke in just before 6 a.m. Thursday, armed with a knife.

A struggle ensued, police said, and a 66-year-old man was injuried, while a 58-year-old woman was able to disarm the suspect and give the family a chance to escape and call police.
