Mackenzie Selk, a 24-year-old Estevan man, has been remanded to custody after appearing in Estevan Provincial Court to answer for charges stemming from an incident on Saturday.
"Around 7:30 pm Saturday evening," explained Deputy Police Chief, Murray Cowan, "EPS members were dispatched to a home invasion on the north end of the city at a residence."
"The suspect had forced himself into the residence and subsequently assaulted an occupant inside. The suspect at that time used a weapon, which was a golf club to strike the victim and afterwards left the scene."
"Officers were able to determine shortly afterwards who that suspect was, the victim and suspect were known to each other. So they were able to subsequently locate him downtown about half an hour to 40 minutes later in a local lounge."
"They took him into custody at that time at which point he resisted members and they had to use force to take him into custody."
As to a motive, it is still unclear at this time.
"As the investigation is unfolding, it's looking like it might be some type of a domestic situation but we don't have a whole lot of details on that at this point."
"The investigation is ongoing. We are looking at the possibility of further charges including weapons charges. Investigators will be consulting with the Crown on that matter and we'll go from there."
Selk is currently charged with break and enter, aggravated assault, uttering death threats, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer. He made his first court appearance this morning and will be back in Estevan Provincial Court on Friday, April 27th.
