A 27 year old Saskatoon man is custody, charged with assaulting 2 police officers after a disturbance that occurred in the 100 block of Ave O south just after 7 pm on May 7, 2018.
Police were attempting to arrest this male who had outstanding warrants when he became extremely violent and started striking the officers with his fists and kicking them. To avoid further assaultive behavior to the officers, a CEW was deployed and the male was taken into custody without any further incident. One officer sustained minor injuries and was treated and released from hospital.
As is always the case with CEW deployments, the incident will be reviewed in accordance with policy.
