Police investigating incident involving a knife


Estevan Police Service members were called to the area near 13th Avenue and King Street on Sunday night, to a report of a male who confronted another male, and produced a knife.

The complainant was able to get away unharmed.

Police are investigating the incident, and are asking for public assistance in the matter. If there is anyone who witnessed this incident, or has any information, please contact Crime Stoppers or the Estevan Police Service. 

At this time, a motive for the incident is unclear. Police will provide an update when information becomes available. 

Police also responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in a residential area on Sunday night. Officers stopped the vehicle, identified the occupants, and determined that no criminal activity was taking place.

Members were called numerous times on Saturday regarding a suspicious and possibly intoxicated male. Police located the male, spoke to him and found he was not intoxicated. He was asked to leave the location where he was creating concern. Police had to speak to him for a second and third time to ask him to keep moving along.

Two separate complaints of domestic assaults were reported within minutes of each other. The first is still under investigation, as police need to locate the other person involved. The second incident was resolved, as the victim did not want the other person charged. Both incidents involved female complainants stating they had been assaulted by their common law partner.

Police were asked to attend to a residence in the west area of Estevan regarding paint ball guns being fired off in a backyard. The owner of the residence was advised of the firearm bylaw.

Officers were called to an apartment in the central part of Estevan, due to a dispute between an ex-tenant and a landlord. There was a difference of opinion regarding the state in which the living space was left upon eviction. The tenant was asked to remove belongings that were left behind, and to repair damages.

Police conducted stationary radar on Friday night, and stopped several people for speeding. In the first instance, a pickup truck was going 94 kilometres per hour (KPH) in a 50 zone on Kensington Avenue. The driver was stopped and charged for speeding, and he was also found to have been drinking. He was arrested for impaired driving and driving over .08, and was released to family members.

Members stopped another motorist on Kensington, after he was clocked travelling 108 KPH. The driver received a fine for more than $400.

Police also stopped a vehicle travelling 98 KPH in a 50 zone on Fourth Street. The driver, an Alberta resident, was charged for speeding and also was found to have been drinking, and was charged with impaired driving and driving while over .08.

Officers checked a vehicle on the east end of the city. The two occupants were arrested and charged for possession of marijuana. One male was charged for having and consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle.

Police were called to multiple noise complaints throughout the city, due to parties that were taking place. All were warned of the bylaw, and no further action was required.

Members attended an east end drinking establishment, and arrested a female who was consuming alcohol. She was on conditions to abstain from alcohol due to outstanding charges, and has multiple outstanding charges for not complying with her conditions. She was lodged in cells until sober, and police attempted to have her remanded for a court appearance on Monday.

Police were called to a break-and-enter in an east end industrial area business. Entry was gained to the business, and alarms were activated. Police recovered a couple pieces of evidence at the scene, and are hoping some public tips and assistance will come in to help identify the person responsible.

Officers dealt with bylaw matters such as dogs at large, parked vehicles and traffic enforcement.
