A 26 year old Saskatoon man is facing charges following a break in to a residence in the 1400 Block of Idylwyld Dr. North earlier this evening.
At approximately 6:14 p.m., August 25, 2017, officers responded to a Domestic Dispute/Break and Enter call where there was a lot of screaming and a lot of damage being done inside the home. Police arrived and found a man inside the home causing significant damage. He eventually came out of the house compliant but he quickly became agitated and aggressive towards the officers and refused to comply with their commands. After multiple unsuccessful attempts to gain compliance, one of the officers deployed his conducted energy weapon (CEW), and the suspect was quickly taken into custody without further incident. He was checked by M.D. Ambulance and was medically cleared at the scene and transported to SPS.
The incident will be reviewed in accordance to policy.
The 26 year old male is facing charges of Break and Enter and Commit Mischief, Breach of a Court Order (X4) and he had an outstanding warrant for Breach of a Court order as well. He will be seen by a Justice of the Peace tomorrow.
