Three men have been charged after allegedly pushing down an 84-year-old woman and stealing her vehicle Thursday morning.
Twenty-one-year-old Shane Wesquate from Paynton, Sask., 18-year-old Destin Mosquito from the Onion Lake First Nation, Sask. and 18-year-old Lyndross Sapp from Little Pine First Nation, Sask. were taken into custody.
The three men were charged with robbery and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
Wesquate also faces two charges of failing to comply with a probation order. Mosquito faces one count of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, while Sapp faces one count of possession of ammunition contrary to a prohibition order.
The three appeared in court in Regina Friday morning.
On Thursday around 7:35 a.m., Regina police received a call about a robbery in a parking lot on Kleisinger Crescent, just west of Broad Street and off of 9th Avenue North.
Police said the 84-year-old was scraping her car’s windows when she was approached by two men, who allegedly pushed her to the ground before taking her vehicle.
EMS treated her for minor injuries at the scene. She was also taken to hospital as a precaution.
The vehicle was found a short time later nearby in the area of Stern Bay and Sangster Boulevard.
