The Regina Police Service is continuing to investigate mischief incidents from Sunday, in which a number of buildings and vehicles were damaged by someone throwing rocks. One male has been arrested and charged in connection with eight instances of damage, but police anticipate there may be other, similar instances which have not yet been reported.
On Sunday, July 5, 2020, at approximately 9:37 p.m., police received a call from a person reporting that a male was throwing rocks at vehicles. The witness was calling from the 2000 block of Lorne Street. The witness described a male walking northbound on Smith Street, stopping to throw rocks at the Queen’s Bench Court building, then City Hall, the Provincial Courthouse, and at least one other business location, before disappearing from sight. As police were responding to the first locations, more calls were received reporting damage to vehicles and more businesses, up to the 1400 block of Albert Street. In the 1200 block of Angus Street, police located a male who matched the description given by a witness and arrested him without further incident. The male appeared to be intoxicated by alcohol and/or other drugs. The officers confirmed the identity of the suspect male and found he was wanted on a warrant; he was also on conditions to abstain from alcohol. Police went to each of the locations where damage occurred, to take photos and seize any other physical evidence. The male has been charged with several counts of mischief. This investigation is ongoing.
At this time, 28 year-old Dylan Terrell BLACKSIOUX, of the Regina district, has been charged with:
- 5 X Mischief under $5,000 [430(4) CC];
- 3 X Mischief over $5,000 [430(3) CC].
BLACKSIOUX will make his first court appearance on these charges at 1:30 p.m. this afternoon (Monday, July 6, 2020).
