Battlefords RCMP say they got a call last night from a homeowner who had a man in the driveway bleeding from several stab sounds. The call came in at 7:50 p.m. from the 1000 block of 104th Street.
A 34 year old man was taken to Saskatoon hospital for surgery suffering from serious injuries. He is expected to recover. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Battlefords RCMP or Crimestoppers and RCMP say this is not believed to be a random incident. The suspect remains at large.
Just after 1:30 a.m. this morning Battlefords RCMP were called by a resident regarding several shots being fired on 111th Street in North Battleford. Officers located a home with several bullet holes in it in the 14-hundred block of 114th Street. No one was hurt and the resident of the home refused to cooperate with police. RCMP do not believe this is a random incident.
Shortly before 3 this morning (weds), Battlefords RCMP were called to a home in the 1100 block of 109th Street after getting a call that the front door had been kicked in by three men armed with guns. RCMP say the home invaders took what they could of value and left in a vehicle that had been stolen earlier in the night. While looking for the vehicle, officers heard more shots being fired and converged on another area of the city and in the process, came across the suspect vehicle, but it wouldn't stop for police. The pursuit was called off due to unsafe road conditions and the erratic driving of the suspects. The stolen vehicle was later found abandoned near Cutknife. Again this is not believed to be a random incident. Battlefords RCMP say they continue to investigate and arrests and charges are pending.
Battlefords RCMP say they have now arrested and charged a 16 year old in connection to a break and enter a week ago today (weds). Numerous firearms and ammunition were stolen and the suspects were scared off by the homeowner. While searching for the suspects in the break in last Wednesday, RCMP were dispatched to a call of shots fired. They came across a home with numerous bullet holes. The 16 year old from North Battleford has been charged with Break and Enter, Possession of a Weapon obtained by Crime, Using a Firearm in the Commission of an Offence, Possession of a Weapon for a dangerous purpose, Discharge a Firearm with intent, Mischief and Point a Firearm.
