A 37 year old Saskatoon man is facing a charge of uttering threats following a domestic dispute in which a Conducted Energy Weapon was deployed by responding Police Officers.
Just before midnight, June 25, 2018, Police were called to a disturbance where a man was reportedly armed with an axe, was damaging property and threatening others present. When officers arrived at the Galt Court home they encountered the man, still armed with the axe. He refused commands from the officers, who then deployed the CEW. It was not effective in subduing the man, however the officers were able to physically restrain him and take him into custody.
There were no injuries as a result of the incident which will be reviewed in accordance with policy.
