A man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant has been arrested in Victoria.
Rourke Desmanche was spotted early Sunday morning in the 700-block of Pembroke Street by a Victoria Police K9 unit.
He made a motion to run, according to police, but stopped after the officer indicated his police dog would be set loose.
Desmanche then complied and was taken into custody where he is being held for court.
Desmanche had been wanted for parole violations stemming from a homicide conviction. He was convicted in February 2013 of manslaughter for shaking his baby to death.
At the time of the baby’s death, Desmanche was not even supposed to be near the home of the baby’s mother.
