A 34 year-old male is facing a total of six new charges as the result of his arrest on warrants earlier today (Monday).
At approximately 2:00 a.m., on Monday, October 10, 2016, a police officer observed a male, at a business in the 5800 block of Rochdale Boulevard, whom he believed to the subject of five outstanding Criminal Code warrants for arrest. When the male was asked to identify himself, he gave the officer a piece of identification belonging to another person. The officer then confirmed the male’s identity through police checks, including a photograph. When officers attempted to arrest the male on the warrants, he actively resisted and allegedly kept trying to reach for something at the waistband of his pants. Officers had to subdue the suspect by taking him to the ground and, upon searching him, found a knife concealed in his waistband. The suspect was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the physical struggle during the arrest. He has since been remanded into custody.
Thirty-four year-old Cree Colin GOFORTH, DOB: 1982-02-24, of Regina, is facing six new charges:
– Resist Arrest, s. 129(a) CC;
– Identity Fraud, s. 403(1)(d) CC;

– 3 x Breach of Undertaking, s. 145(3) CC.
In addition, GOFORTH will deal with the outstanding warrants. GOFORTH will make his next court appearance on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, at 2pm.
