The Estevan Police Service spend their night breaking up fights and mediating disagreements.

"We attended two separate disturbances, one in the Pleasantdale area and the second one over by the Shopper's Mall. The parties were separated, the matters mediated and resolved for the evening," shared Sergeant Kevin Reed.

The latter occurrence stemmed from a call to a residence that a certain unwanted individual would not leave. By the time members arrived, the person in question had left, but she was observed driving away a couple blocks from the address. She was stopped and warned to stay away and not contact the home owner, or she would be criminally prosecuted.

"We also attended to a disturbance behind the Leisure Center at the Skate park. There were two youths that were in an altercation. They've both been charged under the bylaw for fighting in public."

Officers then had to impound a vehicle driving a excessive speed, entering the north end of the city in the wee hours of the morning. The male driver was charged with driving while prohibited and speeding.

If you were driving down 4th Street Tuesday afternoon, you may have noticed fire trucks pulled up to the police station. Reed also provided an explanation for the scene.

"One of our exhaust fans froze up, then it ended up smoking, so the fire department came and disconnected it, and resolved the situation."

During the day on Tuesday, the EPS received a report of an assault from a north end business in the early morning hours. Statements were taken and police are attempting to obtain video footage from the business to assist in identifying the suspect, as the matter remains under investigation.

Members also got a call about a group of people making threats to a young man. Officers are gathering statements again, as well as trying to obtain audio and video evidence of the offence, as this matter remains under investigation as well.

A driving complaint that resulted in a collision at an intersection is also under investigation, with charges pending to one driver. No injuries were reported. 

A report of the theft of money form a local property is also being investigated.
