The Regina Police Service has charged a 19 year-old Regina male in connection with the robbery of a 35 year-old food delivery driver on Friday night.
On Friday, January 3, 2020, at about 7:54 p.m., police were dispatched to the area of Hamilton Street and Victoria Avenue for a report of a robbery. The early information indicated a male was seen going through a vehicle in a parking lot in that area, when the same male approached a food delivery driver in his vehicle and entered the passenger side. It’s alleged the suspect male demanded items from the victim and then began to assault him. The suspect then left and the victim contacted police who located the suspect and made the arrest for the robbery. Officers allege the suspect gave a false name in the investigation, but eventually gave his real name. Further investigation by the officers led to the information that the suspect was the subject of a Canada wide warrant and unlawfully at large. The suspect was charged and held for court.
Nineteen year-old Kurtis Clayton THOMAS, of Regina, is charged with:
– Robbery [344(1)(b) CC]; and
– Identity Fraud with Intent to Avoid Arrest [403(1)(d) CC].
THOMAS was scheduled to make his first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, January 6, 2020.
