Assaults, hit and run, and domestic disputes were just some of the calls that the Weyburn Police service has responded to in the past week.
On May 5th, officers responded to a domestic dispute between a 25 year old female, and a 26 year old male. The female may have been assaulted during the incident, but was not wishing to proceed with charges. As a result, no criminal charges were laid in the incident.
Also on May 5th, officers received a complaint of a hit and run accident in a city parking lot. The suspect vehicle collided with the bumper of a parked vehicle. That incident is still under investigation.
A 17 year old male received a ticket for stunting on May 6th, after police received a report of someone driving erratically in the Riverwood area.
On Wednesday, May 7th, officers responded to a domestic dispute between a 55 year old female, and 58 year old male. The woman explained that she was concerned for her safety, while the male didn't understand why police were called. Officers separated the two parties. Alcohol was a factor in the incident.
A property dispute between a 20 year old man and his former girlfriend on May 9th resulted in the Weyburn Police Service responding. Officers spoke to both parties, and the dispute was settled without incident.
Also on May 9th, an officer spotted two youths getting in to a vehicle carrying cases of beer. The vehicle was stopped by police, and the driver was found to be impaired. He was arrested for impaired driving, and transported back to the police station. He was subsequently charged with having the care and control of a vehicle while over .08.
Police responded to a potentially dangerous situation on Saturday, May 10th. Officers responded to a 9-1-1 call of a fight in the area of Souris Ave and Fourth Street. When responding, they determined that a 40 year old male and a 35 year old female had an altercation. The intoxicated male then left in a vehicle with a young child in it, and the intoxicated female pursued. The two vehicles collided with each other, and the occupants continued to fight. The female was charged with impaired driving, and driving while over .08. The male was charged with impaired driving, driving while over .08, dangerous driving, and use of an electronic communications device while driving.
Saturday also saw officers respond to a few calls where alcohol was involved. The first saw them attend a residence where an intoxicated female was banging on the door. The female was directed to her own residence, and no charges were laid. The other was a fight at a local bar. Everyone had dispersed by the time officers had arrived.
Yet another incident on Saturday was another dispute in downtown Weyburn. This time, four males were arguing with each other. Officers sent them on their way, and no charges were laid in the incident.
Officers continued to be busy on Sunday, May 11th as well. First they responded to a party complaint at a residence. The officer was warned about noise, and he turned the music down.
Officers also responded to a disturbance outside a local bar. A 27 year old male was naked, and vandalizing cars and fighting. The man fled before police arrived. Subsequent investigation indicated that the male had attacked a 39 year old male and beaten him in the men's washroom inside the bar. He was then ejected from the bar by the owner, and began to vandalize the vehicle in the parking lot. He was located on the 1200 block of East Ave, and arrested. He was violent and intoxicated at the time of his arrest. He was charged with assault causing bodily harm, mischief over $5000, and uttering death threats. He is scheduled to appear on those charges in court later this month.
On Sunday, officers responded to a disturbance at a residence. A neighbor called police when a young, badly beaten male was on his front steps bleeding, and it sounded like a female was being beaten next door. Officers attended, and arrested a 30 year old intoxicated male. Investigation indicated he had beaten the 24 year old male after a disagreement inside the residence. The female hadn't been harmed in any way. The victim was transported to Weyburn General Hospital by EMS for treatment. The 30 year old male was charged with assault causing bodily harm. He was later released for court later this month.
