A Minneapolis man has been charged after a Canada Border Services Agency officer was assaulted at the Emerson border crossing last weekend.

Ahmed Aden Ali is charged with uttering threats, mischief over $5,000 and assaulting a peace officer.

Last Saturday, just before 1 a.m., police assistance was requested at the Emerson port of entry after a man detained there was reportedly acting aggressively, RCMP said in a release.

A 37-year-old man had been taking to port of entry after being found making a illegal border crossing. The man was placed in a cell while his refugee claim was processed. While there police said the man threatened to harm CSBA officers, damaged a fire sprinkler and physically assaulted an officer.

Ali remains in custody.
