RCMP exchange fire with robbery suspects, charges laid

Postado Abril 16, 2018

Regina police were called to the 2900-block of Parliament Avenue for a robbery and assault with a weapon on Friday morning.

The vehicle involved in a theft at a gas station in Lashburn, Sask., at around 11:30 a.m. CT on Saturday matched the description of the stolen cab.

North Battleford/Maidstone RCMP say shots were fired during the recovery of a stolen Regina taxi cab this weekend in rural Saskatchewan.

Maidstone RCMP located this vehicle on Highway 16 and activated their emergency equipment, but the van did not stop. This resulted in an RCMP member discharging their firearm.

The cab's 34-year-old driver was stabbed with potentially life threatening injuries, according to police.

The RCMP vehicle struck the van, then the van got stuck in the ditch.

RCMP members would like to speak with anyone who was travelling on Fire Lane, in the Cloud Lake area, or boating on the lake April 13.

With the help of police dog services, the man and woman were then arrested.

After a preliminary investigation, RCMP determined the boat belonged to the 67-year-old man. The woman was treated for minor injuries caused by the dog.

No RCMP members were injured as a result of this incident.
