The Winnipeg Police Headquarters building is part of an investigation after it was vandalized during a protest Tuesday night. 

Winnipeg Police say the protest started after officers arrested a man who was connected to encampments asking the government to search the landfill for the remains of two Indigenous women.

While the man was in custody, police say a group of protestors gathered in front of the police Headquarters and chanted for him to be released.

Several individuals used red paint to write derogatory phrases and smeared red handprints on the front windows and inner vestibule.

Numerous police units were present to de-escalate the situation and maintain public safety. After approximately two hours, the crowd disbursed, and nobody was injured.

Winnipeg Police say the man was arrested on July 25 near Israel Asper Way and Provencher Boulevard in relation to two previous incidents at the Brady Resource Management Facility.

On April 6, while wearing military-style fatigues, the accused was protesting at the Brady site when he confronted an on-site security guard who was stationed at the site. The accused made threatening comments to cause him harm and referenced access to firearms. As the victim was fearful, he left the area unharmed and contacted police.

On July 23, while protesting at the Brady site, the accused confronted a different on-site security guard in his work truck. He jumped on the hood of the security vehicle, uttered threats to harm him, and refused to get off the hood. Rocks were thrown at the truck causing damage. The victim was fearful and eventually escaped unharmed and contacted police.

27-year-old Tre Lennox Delaronde faces a long list of charges. 

He was released on an Undertaking as mandated by the Criminal Code.

The Major Crimes Unit has taken over this investigation. Anyone with information regarding the damage incident can call investigators at 204-986-6219 or anonymously at 204-786-TIPS or
