Saskatoon Police arrested three people Monday night in connection to an armed robbery at a bar in the 24 hundred block of 22nd Street West. Police received several reports of a fight that could involve weapons and when officers arrived suspects had apparently taken off in a black vehicle although the victim was inside the bar. The victim was allegedly robbed of his wallet at knife point. And police believe he knew his assailants. A suspect vehicle was tracked down to the 12 hundred block of Avenue L South and a man and woman were arrested. Police seized a sawed off rifle, ammunition and a knife. That search sent officers to a home in the 100 block of Barber Crescent where officers again conducted a high risk traffic stop and detained, but later released, four females. An imitation fire-arm was seized and a suspect from the robbery was arrested inside a home on the street. Three people face charges; two men aged 20 and 23 and and a 23 year old woman.
In a separate investigation, the Saskatoon Police Service says it has arrested a 35 year old man and a 29 year old woman, both from Calgary, in connection to a number of break-ins of mail boxes and underground parkades where apartments are involved. The investigation has been underway since September and Saskatoon Police worked with Calgary Police to identify their suspects. A 35 year old man and a 29 year old woman both face 9 counts of break and enter.
