Two adult males, both 20 year-olds, are in police custody following a bear-spray incident at a Regina High School today (April 16, 2014).
Police were dispatched at approximately 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, to Scott Collegiate at 3350 – 7th Avenue for a report of an incident in which two males (now known not to be students) entered the school and went to the office, inquiring to see a specific staff member. The males left the office and walked through the school when they came into contact with two other school staff members. One of the males made derogatory statements toward one of the staff members and then it is alleged the male suspect discharged bear spray at the staff member. The male suspects ran from the building and were pursued by one of the staff members. As the chase led out of the school, police at the North Central Community Centre at 1264 Athol Street, heard the commotion and intervened, arresting the two suspects. One of the males was in possession of bear spray and a knife. Other than the bear spray contamination, there were no other injuries reported in this incident.
The investigation into this matter is ongoing, with charges pending the outcome of the investigation.
