EPS seeking information on bicycle incident

The Estevan Police Service (EPS) is asking for the public’s assistance with a bicycle accident that resulted in one person being taken to hospital.  

Police attended an emergency call at the intersection of 12th Avenue and Valley Street. A 911 call reported that a man was lying injured in the middle of the street, near his bicycle. EMS attended and transported him to St. Joseph’s Hospital for examination and treatment.

Members are still investigating the incident but believe it is a bicycle accident and no other individuals or vehicles were involved. If anyone witnessed this incident or has any information, please call the EPS. 

Police want to thank the citizens who called 911 and remained with the subject.

Also on Friday, police arrested a 16-year-old youth for breaching conditions of his probation order. He was lodged in cells and will appear before a justice of the peace Saturday morning.

Members responded to a report of a stolen vehicle from the area of Sixth Avenue and Fourth Street. The vehicle was located about a half hour later, moved from its original location and parked nearby.

Police stopped a vehicle at Sixth Street and Souris Avenue South. The 23-year-old from Estevan was given a 72-hour driver’s licence suspension and had his vehicle seized for 72 hours after recording a warning level on the roadside screening device.

Police received several scam calls Thursday in which the phone number that was displayed was familiar to the intended victim. Scammers use this technique in hopes that you answer the call. Please remember to never give out any personal information over the phone.
