The Saskatoon Police Service has arrested a man who assaulted multiple police officers on Monday.
On May 23, 2022 at approximately 7:15 a.m., police were dispatched to the 200 block of Kingsmere Boulevard in regards to a man sleeping in a stairwell. The caller had indicated it was unclear if the man was breathing.
Upon arrival, officers found a 21-year-old male in the stairwell, where he appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant. When police attempted to wake him he immediately became combative and began to fight, as the two officers attempted to take him into custody. At one point, the two officers and the 21-year-old man ended up falling down the stairs. The suspect continued to fight until finally being subdued and taken into custody by four officers.
Two SPS officers were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The suspect was also transported to hospital by Medavie Health Services, before being released back into police custody.
The 21-year-old man is charged with Assaulting a Police Officer x2.
