SASKATOON — The subject of a wanted person investigation, Rolfe Rueben Herman, 32, has been located, according to Saskatoon Police Service
Herman was wanted on charges of aggravated assault and forcible confinement following an incident earlier March 26 in which a firearm was pointed at police members, resulting in an officer discharging their firearm.
He was arrested March 30 after police attended to an address in the 3200 block of 33rd Street and, shortly before 7 p.m., observed the suspect exit a residence. Police say the suspect attempted to flee from police but tactical support and canine officers were able to take him into custody.
Upon his arrest, the man appeared to be suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to hospital for treatment for the non-life threatening injury before being released into police custody.
The SPS has requested the Province of Saskatchewan appoint independent investigators to ensure transparency.
Herman had been determined to be the suspect involved in an incident on March 26, and at approximately 10:30 p.m., March 28 police attempted to stop a vehicle in the area of 8th Street East and Grosvenor Avenue. It was believed Herman was inside the vehicle. The driver refused to stop for police and evaded police, colliding with a post at St. Henry Avenue and Ruth Street East. The driver then fled on foot. Police continued to search the area throughout the night; however, the suspect, believed to be Herman, was not located at that time.
