A man wanted by RCMP in connection with a violent assault on a woman in a house on the Mosquito First Nation has been arrested in Alberta.


25-year-old Rusty James Pahsaknunk was apprehended in Hobbema by Wetaskiwin RCMP on Friday.


He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court later this week.


Battlefords Rural RCMP issued a Canada-wide warrant for Pahsaknunk after a 23-year-old woman was assaulted on the Mosquito reserve on Christmas Eve.


She was treated in hospital and released.


Pahsaknunk is facing a number of charges in connection with the incident.
