scooter rider went in to the Tim Horton's on Yale Rd. at around 8:30 a.m. Friday. By the time they came out, their yellow 1981 Honda scooter was nowhere in sight.


A Native male was seen speeding off on it and a witness tailed the suspect to an address in the 9500-block of Rotary Drive.


Police ordered the suspect onto the ground several times, but the man wasn't cooperative and so they used force. Unfortunately, in effecting the arrest, the suspect injured an arm.


Officers had a difficult time getting the man into the cruiser, and one officer ran around the car and one pulled while the other pushed. Paramedics were later called to have a look at the suspect's arm.
