A 30 year old man and 28 year old woman are facing charges after an incident early Saturday morning in which the pair are accused of trying to steal a vehicle from a man who had given them a ride into the city.
Regina police say they were called to Prince of Wales Drive and Arcola Avenue around 6 AM after getting reports of a fight in the street. Upon arrival, police saw a vehicle speed away as it turned west onto Arcola Avenue.
A man who was involved in the fight told police he had given the pair a ride into the city and that as they left the vehicle, they tried to steap his backpack. He got out of the vehicle to confront the man when the fight started with the woman getting into the drivers seat and driving away with the male suspect.
A short time later, police were called to a collission at Winnipeg Street and 9th Avenue North when one of the vehicles involved matching the vehicle that had been stolen.
Matthew Bitternose and Michelle Lumberjack are scheduled to appear in court next month
