Two women have been arrested and are facing numerous charges after stealing a vehicle and evading police.
At approximately 5:00 p.m. on June 2, 2022, police responded to the 1300 block of Idylwyld Drive North for a report of a vehicle stolen from a dealership salesperson at knife point while on a test drive. The Air Support Unit quickly located the vehicle travelling on Circle Drive; conveying its movements to officers on the ground. While slowed in heavy traffic, officers intercepted the vehicle in the area of Preston Avenue and College Drive where it crossed the raised centre median and fled at a high rate of speed into oncoming traffic. Officers on the ground disengaged while those in the air continued to monitor. The vehicle was later observed stopping in the area of Arlington Avenue and 8th Street East where officers reengaged the vehicle. The suspects rammed two police vehicles, immobilizing both, in an unsuccessful attempt to flee. One officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries as a result. The suspects were both taken into police custody without further incident.
A 24-year-old Prince Albert woman and a 27-year-old Saskatoon woman are collectively facing a combination of charges including; assault, assault with a weapon, mischief over $5000, operating a motor vehicle being pursued by police, operating a motor vehicle in a manner dangerous to the public, resisting arrest by running from police, robbery, committing an indictable offence while masked, carrying a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, and unauthorized carry of a concealed weapon.
