A police member discharged a CEW, commonly known as a taser, last night, in the arrest of a knife-wielding suspect. This advisory is in keeping with the Regina Police Service’s commitment to notify the public each time a CEW, or Conducted Energy Weapon, is discharged against a person.
Police officers were dispatched at about 7:49 p.m. last night, Monday, July 7, 2014, to the 1800 block of Osler Street for a report of a male with a knife and a second, injured male. When police arrived, they found a 52 year-old male who had suffered apparent stab wounds to his back. The victim’s injuries were treated by EMS at the scene. Another male at that location was holding a knife in a threatening manner when police arrived. Police were able to disarm him by discharging a CEW. The male suspect fell to the ground and sustained a bump to the head. He was taken to hospital for treatment and assessment as per CEW policy. He was later released back into police custody and, upon completion of investigation, was charged.
Forty-seven year old Daryl Don MARR, DOB: 1966-12-02, of Regina is charged with Assault with a Weapon (267 (A) CC) and Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to Public (88 CC). MARR will make his first court appearance at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, in Provincial Court.
