A Selkirk RCMP officer and a Winnipeg police officer were injured during the arrest and were treated.
Dutko was returned to the custody of Stony Mountain Institution and will face charges including being unlawfully at large, two counts of resisting arrest and two counts of assaulting a police officer.
