A third trip by police to a residence in the east end of Estevan resulted in criminal charges on Tuesday night.

The first visit followed a call of a disturbance. EPS Sgt. Tyler McMillen said when they arrived, they learned the people responsible had left, and that nothing criminal had taken place.

McMillen said they were called to the same location about an hour later about two people arguing. They found people that were intoxicated, but didn't see evidence of any criminal activity. 

"One of the parties decided to leave for the night, and that seemed to settle things down for a little while," said McMillen.

When police arrived for the third call, they were informed of an assault. The suspect had left the residence, but was found in a nearby shed.

He was arrested around midnight, and charged with assault and resisting arrest. 

"There were multiple people at this residence," said McMillen. "[The suspect] had been involved in technically all three. But obviously things escalated in the third disturbance and a crime was reported to us."

The man was kept in cells to sober up and be released on conditions.
