On Saturday, March 21, 2020 at approximately 8:48 p.m., police were dispatched to the 1800 block of Atkinson Street for a report of a weapons offence. Upon arrival, police located an injured male. He was transported to hospital by EMS in what was described as serious condition.
Early investigation suggested a taxi operator was driving a passenger to an address on the 1800 block of Atkinson Street. When the taxi arrived, it’s believed the passenger fled without paying the cab fare. The taxi operator exited the vehicle to seek payment from the passenger and the driver was assaulted with an unknown object outside the vehicle. Members of the K9 Unit established a track in the area but yielded negative results. The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
