Information from the Saskatoon Police Service news release

The Saskatoon Police Service announced that a 32-year-old man from Redvers has been arrested following two instances of falsely identifying himself as law enforcement.

The police said they were called to a hotel on the 600 block of Spadina Crescent East around 8:50 a.m. on July 29 for a report of a disturbance involving a man impersonating a peace officer. Police arrived and were told the man approached a woman and her child, identified as police, and accused her of abduction. The woman entered the hotel with her child for help while the man followed her inside causing a disturbance. Bystanders intervened and the man fled on foot.

Then on August 1, police were informed of a similar incident that happened on July 31 around 2 p.m. on the 70 block of Campus Drive. The man allegedly approached a woman, said he was a peace officer, and offered to escort her through the area. The woman declined and the man left.

Police say they continued to investigate, and with the help of video footage, were able to identify the suspect and confirm he was responsible for both incidents.

On Tuesday afternoon they arrested the suspect without incident at an address on the 200 block of 5th Avenue North.

They have charged the man with two counts of impersonating a peace officer, criminal harassment, and two counts of failing to comply with court-imposed conditions.


Travis Patron is the founder of the Canadian Nationalist Party. He was their candidate in the Souris-Moose Mountain riding in the October 2019 Canadian General Election, receiving 0.4 per cent of the votes.

He was found guilty last summer by a jury of two counts of assault causing bodily harm. He assaulted a pair of teachers in Regina, resulting in one suffering a concussion and the other getting a broken wrist. He was sentenced to 18 months incarceration.

He was also found guilty by a jury last fall of wilfully promoting hatred toward Jews.
