One person is facing several charges after an alleged assault in northeast Estevan on Tuesday.
Police were called to a disturbance in a multi-dwelling unit in the Trojan area. Officers attended and arrested a 35-year-old man for assault and break and enter to a dwelling. The male resisted arrest and was taken into custody.
He was lodged in cells for the evening, and will be released later Wednesday on conditions before a justice of the peace. The male will appear in court in December on one count of break and enter to a dwelling, one count of assault and one count of resisting arrest.
Also on Tuesday, police attended to a south end residence for a report of an individual acting very suspiciously. The individual lived in the area and was confused. Police were able to calm the individual down for the evening.
Police also attended to two motor vehicle accidents during the day. The damage was minimal and no injuries were reported from either accident. With the current road conditions, police are recommending people slow down, drive cautiously and not be in a hurry.
Police received a report Monday of a suspicious person wandering around a local hotel. Members attended and were not able to locate anyone in the area.
Officers arrested a 38-year-old woman who is on a conditional sentence order. She failed to attend court for a hearing in regards to an allegation of breaching that order. She will be scheduled to appear in court on Thursday to answer to the breach allegations.
Police were able to execute a couple of other arrest warrants during the day. Two people turned themselves into the police station and were later released with a new court date.
