Portage la Prairie, MB (CKLQ) - During a routine check up at a house party in Portage la Prairie, RCMP were able to find a man, wanted on a Canada-wide warrant.

Officers responded to a disturbance call on Dufferin Avenue on July 1, being told the party was getting out of hand.

They soon learned the man was inside the home, and was arrested for a violation of his parole conditions.

The man attempted to tell police that he was the wrong man they were looking for, but his fingerprints matched the suspect.

Jonathon Carlos Anaquod, 25, of Winnipeg is facing charges of obstructing a police officer and being at large.

Along with the arrest of Anaquod, a woman was taken into custody after fighting with officers, but was released when she was sober.
