Police pursuit leads to arrest of 34 year old Regina male

On March 1, 2020 MHPS received a report from a partnering Law Enforcement Agency of a female being taken against her will and forced into a black Chevy Cruz car with Saskatchewan licence plates. The incident was witnessed in Saskatchewan resulting in the emergent call for service by Saskatchewan RCMP. The Chevy Cruz car was reportedly travelling in the direction of Medicine Hat and MHPS was subsequently notified. Members of MHPS patrols located the Chevy Cruz entering the City and officers attempted to stop the vehicle however the vehicle fled from the police. Given the nature of the call and the serious and imminent risk to the female held against her will, patrol members pursued the vehicle in attempt to stop it. After extensive efforts by MHPS patrols, support units within the MHPS and assistance from other Police Agencies, a 34 year old Regina male suspect was taken into custody for various criminal offences including flight from police, dangerous driving, disqualified driving, domestic violence and breach of probation. MHPS is pleased to report the female in the vehicle is fine and there was no injury to the suspect or police. The Service would like to thank members of the public for their assistance on this serious call for service.
