Saskatoon Police used a taser or conducted energy weapon to make an arrest yesterday evening. It happened just after 6 pm when officers responded to a disturbance complaint at a home in the 200 block of Avenue X North.
Police say a man who had an outstanding warrant for break and enter, brandished a box cutter, and then took off. The CEW was deployed during the foot chase when the suspect allegedly stopped numerous times and threatened to hurt himself.
You may have noticed the police giving chase if you were around 22nd Street West in that part of the city at the time, because the foot chase traversed all lanes of traffic. A 29 year old man was arrested and faces several charges.
