A 37-year old man who has served for police for 14 years was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries Tuesday evening.
Police in Saskatoon received a call a vehicle had just been stolen from Edmonton Avenue just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.
An officer then spotted it in the 300 block of Avenue T North and attempted to stop it. The vehicle was running and was unlocked at the time it was stolen.
The investigation is in its early stages, but police spokesperson Kelsie Fraser says the stolen vehicle stopped at the corner of Idylwyld Drive and 33rd Street.
The suspect got out of the vehicle and started to run. The officer began to pursue the suspect on foot when he was struck by a vehicle.
Additional police units responded and the suspect was tracked to an apartment block in the 1100 block of Ave B North.
Just after 7:00 PM, police received additional information indicating the suspect was still in the apartment block and the suspect was taken in to custody without further incident.
The suspect was also wanted on an unrelated arrest warrant. He will be held in custody and appear in court Wednesday afternoon.
No charges are being contemplated against the driver of the vehicle that struck the constable
