Male captured by K9 contact after fleeing and assaulting police officers

Medicine Hat, Alberta – On July 3rd at approximately 10:00pm police observed a male in the downtown core who was wanted for a previous break-in. When told he was under arrest, the male fled on a bicycle carrying a set of golf clubs. Police followed the suspect who abandoned the bike in front of the library. The male then took a golf club and raised it to an officer in a striking motion. Other officers arriving were confronted by the male who tried to punch an officer in the face.

A physical struggle ensued whereby the suspect tore off part of an officer’s uniform and broke free of the arrest attempt. The K9 unit arrived and PSD Flint was deployed, making positive contact with the suspect. Police then took the male into custody and conveyed him the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital for assessment. While at the hospital the suspect continued to be combative and was spitting at the escorting officer.

The male is known to police and has a history of night-time criminal activity in and around the downtown area.
