A prolific offender is back in police custody after spending a little over four days free from prison.
Barriere RCMP received a report of an assault on May 11 from an area residence. Police were advised that a well known offender had allegedly punched his girlfriend and held a knife to her throat before she managed to get away.
With the assistance of Clearwater RCMP, police located the male, who was arrested without incident. Shane Jeurissen was held in custody, then appeared before a judge.
He was charged with assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, uttering threats and two counts of breaching a probation order. Jeurissen had only been released from prison on May 7, after serving a four month sentence for breaching his probation. He has had over 115 convictions in less than 27 years.
