Crime of the Week #48

To air: November 28 – December 4, 2016

Topic:  Tricycle Theft

Occurrence #:  2016-803253

On November 4, 2016 a tricycle was stolen out of a backyard of a house on Egbert Ave.  The tricycle was specially designed for an autistic boy making the theft an even more emotional one for the family.

Bike thefts have become an all too common problem.  Since January 2016 over eleven hundred bikes have been stolen in Saskatoon.  There have been 40 bikes been stolen this month alone.

Hundreds of bikes are found by the city police each year in Saskatoon.  Some have been found after search warrants have been executed specifically targeting those believed to be responsible for bike thefts.  When bikes are recovered by police, the serial number is used to check databases to see if it has been reported stolen.   The majority of bikes end up going to auction as the serial number does not come back as stolen.  One of the reasons is the owners have never taken the time to document it and when the unfortunate theft happens, the owner does not have it to give to police.

Please take the time, yes even in November, to go write down your serial number or take a photo of it.  The majority of serial numbers are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet.

Crime Stopper pays cash rewards for information leading to an arrest.  If you have information about where the stolen tricycle is or who is responsible for the other bike thefts across Saskatoon contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or you can go on-line to saskatooncrimestoppers.com to leave a web tip or text “TIP210” with your message to “CRIMES”.  Come like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

This week we need your help to identify a man responsible for a violent assault in which the victim suffered severe injury to his ear.

In the early morning hours of September 11, 2016 the victim was in the 3900 block of 8th Street East.  He was attempting to get help from bystanders as his cell phone had been just been stolen.

His night went from bad to worse when a verbal altercation occurred with the suspect, who was driving a blue 2 door car.   The man exited the vehicle, followed the victim into a nearby convenience store and physically assaulted him. 

The suspect fled the scene in the blue car, believed to Kia Forte.  The suspect was seen leaving with two other males who are not considered suspects in this investigation.

As a result of this assault the victim had to receive surgery to reattach his ear.

Crime of the Week #45

To air:  November 7-14, 2016

Topic:  Break and Enter

Occurrence #: 2016-102618

This week we need your help to identify a person responsible for a break and enter into an office complex.

Between the afternoon of October 9 and early morning of October 10, 2016 an office complex in the 500 block of Cynthia St was broken into. 

In one of the business offices a safe was broken into.  The only thing stolen was cash.  It was strange how everything else was left meticulously in place with the safe wiped down.

In a separate business office a vehicle key was stolen as well as cash from the desk.

The vehicle the key belonged to was stolen outside of the business and has already been recovered by police.

The person responsible is believed to have prior knowledge of the office complex, targeted the offices believed to have cash and cleaned up after themselves.

It’s too bad the life lesson of “Tidy up after yourself when you make a mess.” stuck with this thief and the life lesson of “Don’t take other people’s things.” did not.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to an arrest.

This week we need your help in identifying two men who turned a theft of candy and energy drinks into a robbery using bear spray.

In the late evening of August 4, 2016 two suspects entered a convenience store in the 3700 block of Diefenbaker Drive.  One man went directly to the energy drinks and bags of candy.  He began filling his backpack while the other man strutted into the store.  He lifted up his sweatshirt pulling out a can of bear spray.  He calmly sprayed a couple puffs into the air.  The terrified lone employee dropped to the ground behind the till.  The suspect holding the bear spray raced through the cloud of his own bear spray and began to spray the victim.

Having gone through the cloud of his own bear spray, he quickly began to feel the effects.  He ran out of the store with the other suspect quickly following. 

The man holding the backpack was wearing gray pants, gray shoes, dark colored jacket, dark rimmed glasses, black and white hat, and had a bandana covering his face.

The man holding the bear spray was as wearing a gray sweatshirt, dark colored pants, dark colored hat, black and white shoes, and had a bandana covering his face.

Occurrence #: 2016-73268

This week we need your help in identifying three suspects who robbed a gas station in the 200 block of Avenue B North.

In the early morning hours of July 26, 2016 three men entered the gas station armed with a gun.  A suspect pointed it at the lone employee and ordered him on the ground.  One man with the gun held it to the employees head while they stole cash, cigarettes and lotto tickets.

The employee believed the gun to be real until the suspect holding the gun pulled the trigger.  The employee felt a puff of air and realized it was fake.  He fought with the suspect, but was beaten up by two of the men.

Suspect #1 was holding the gun. He was wearing a light blue hoodie, blue jeans and gloves.

Suspect #2 was wearing a black hoodie with a yellow pattern on the back, black shorts, and gloves.

Suspect #3 was wearing a bright plaid sweat shirt with hood, black pants and gloves.

The suspects may be associated to a burgundy, older style 4 door Oldsmobile, with chrome wheels and chrome trim.

We would like to remind you that although these suspects gambled with their freedom, don’t gamble with your wellbeing if you find yourself in a similar situation.  You are worth more than cash, cigarettes and lotto tickets.
