The Regina Police Service is investigating a robbery/home invasion that occurred in south-east Regina on the weekend. Police are also asking the public’s help in identifying an unknown male suspect in this case.
On Saturday, June 5, 2021, at about 11:40 p.m., police patrols units were dispatched to a residence in the 3300 block of Green Poppy Street for what was initially reported as a robbery. This incident happened at a multi-unit building, in a ground floor unit. The female resident at that location reported that an unknown male entered her apartment through a sliding glass door that she’d left slightly open. The male demanded money and personal items from her, as she tried to call 9-1-1 on her phone. There was a struggle in which the suspect grabbed her phone, disconnecting the call. The RPS Communications Centre called back and the victim was able to answer the phone as the suspect fled. Police did an area check but were unable to find anyone matching the suspect’s description.
On suspect descriptions: please remember that victims and witnesses do the best they can, in traumatic circumstances, to describe suspects. The description that follows may be incomplete.

Clothing was described as a white “Nike” hoodie, with dark blue “V” pattern on the front and pink writing; dark jeans and white shoes.
