A twenty two year-old male has been charged in connection with a robbery which occurred the evening of May 12th, 2014 in the 4000 block of Albert Street. The victim is a 70 year-old male.
In the original incident: Police were dispatched at approximately 4:11 p.m. on Monday, May 12, 2014, to a business in the 4000 block of Albert Street for a report of an assault in progress. When police arrived, they located the victim, a 70 year-old male, who had been punched in the face; he was being assisted by other citizens, prior to EMS arrival. Preliminary investigation indicates a male briefly entered the business and then exited the store, approached a customer and tried to rob him of his purchases. When the victim resisted, he was punched in the face. The suspect fled before police arrived. Investigation into this event led to the arrest of the 22 year-old Regina male without incident.
