A 36-year-old Regina man is facing numerous charges including assaulting a peace officer with a weapon and evading police, after a shoplifting incident.
Police say the incident began at a retail store on the 2900 block of Gordon Road Tuesday afternoon.
Officers said the suspect entered the store and took two jackets before fleeing the scene.
Police were able to locate the suspect on the 1300 block of Aberdeen Street getting into a vehicle.
When officers asked the man to stop he struck a police officer who sustained minor injuries, with the vehicle and the police cruiser before fleeing the scene.
Early Thursday morning the suspect was arrested without incident.
He made his first court appearance later in the day Thursday.
