Police Chase

At 8:39 AM this date a member of the Saskatoon Police Service observed a car that had been reported stolen on July 30th being driven in the area of Ave V and 22nd St. The vehicle failed to stop for police and a chase lasting just over a minute ended near 18th St and Ave Q where the stolen vehicle left the road appeared to be stuck.

As police attempted to remove the driver he was able to get the stolen vehicle moving again and rammed two police cars. Pursuit was terminated and the vehicle was not pursued further due to safety concerns for the public, police and the driver of the stolen vehicle.

Approximately 45 minutes later the vehicle was observed again near Ave P and 20th St. where a 12 year old male was arrested and has been charged with Possession of Stolen Property, Assault with a Weapon, Fail to Stop for Police, 2 counts of Hit and Run and Fail to hold a Drivers License.

There were no injuries to anyone involved in this incident.
