The Regina Police Service is looking for a 26 year-old male who is alleged to have committed an assault on a 45 year-old male last night at an indoor soccer match.
Police were dispatched at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, to the Credit Union Eventplex at 1700 Elphinstone Street. The caller indicated a referee at a soccer match was struck unconscious by a player on one of the teams. A number of officers arrived at the scene and two officers made their way to the 45 year-old male victim. Preliminary investigation indicates the victim had been struck in the jaw, causing him to fall, unconscious, to the ground. The victim refused EMS but was advised to seek medical follow-up. Other officers checked the locker room areas and common areas of the building looking for a male matching the description of the suspect. The search was carried out as a large crowd was leaving the building. Officers were not able to locate the suspect on the premises, but obtained information to identify the suspect who is believed to be from Alberta.
Investigation into this assault is continuing. Anyone who has information as to the possible whereabouts of the suspect is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
