A couple of arrests, a pedestrian near miss, and more all had the attention of the Estevan Police Service during the Wednesday nightshift.

"A 34 year old male was arrested for breaching conditions of recognizance. He was held in cells to appear in court in the morning," shared Constable Lana Gropp, "(And) a 40 year old male was arrested for charges that occurred over several months last year. He was held for court to answer to the charges."

"EPS attended to two different noise complaints in the central area of the city, both homeowners were warned of the bylaw and no further action was required. Police also received a statement regarding a pedestrian that was nearly hit by a car in a parking lot, chargers are pending for that driver."

During the day on Wednesday, officers received a 911 call from a local school. When they arrived, it was discovered that the student responsible had already left and returned home. The seven year old was located there and spoken to, along with his parents, of the dangers of calling 911 in a false emergency.

A complaint was received of a male threatening a roommate with a hammer. A 25 year old Estevan male was arrested and charged with uttering threats to cause bodily harm, and he appears in Provincial Court in January.

Members also responded to a 2 vehicle collision at the intersection of Sawyer Road and King Street. One of the vehicles had to be towed from the scene, and one occupant had minor, non treatable injuries. An Estevan male was charged under the Traffic Safety Act as a result, for failing to yield the right of way.
