Regina police had to use a Taser as they tried to bring a man into custody Thursday night.
Just before 8, police were called to the 12 hundred block of Athol to arrest a man who was assaulting a woman when they arrived.
The man took off on foot and when confronted by officers, he was unwilling to be taken into custody and challenged those trying to arrest him with words and actions suggesting he intended on harming someone.
While the taser was used, the suspect managed to flee the scene and escape.
Police are still looking for that person.
