Man in custody after stealing cab in Regina’s core

A Regina man is in custody after stealing a taxi in the city’s core.

On Tuesday, just before 8:00 pm, Regina Police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle in progress,

Information suggested a taxi had been stolen, driven a short distance and the suspect fled. When police arrived, they located the taxi, the driver of the taxi, and a passenger.

There was a struggle between the driver and the suspect, and the driver got out of the vehicle. The suspect then drove the cab away with the passenger still inside. After a very short distance, the suspect collided with a tree and ran from the vehicle on foot.

No one was hurt in the incident.

As a result, 33-year-old Raymond Quewezance is facing robbery charges, and one count of mischief under $4,000 relating to a separate incident on Tuesday evening,

He will make his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.
