Knife pulled on bar staff
The Guelph Police Service is investigating after a male armed with a knife lunged at the doorman of a Guelph business.

Approximately 9:30 p.m. Sunday police were called to a business on Silvercreek Parkway South. A male had twice attended the business but was denied entry as he did not have any identification. He returned a third time, pulling out a knife and lunging at the staff member, who was able to move out of the way and was not physically injured.

The suspect fled on foot and was last seen running eastbound on Waterloo Avenue. He was described as a black male, 5’7” with a thin build and wearing a light-coloured windbreaker with dark shoulders, dark pants, a black baseball cap and a medical mask. While checking the area officers recovered a black knife with duct tape around the handle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Constable Bernardus Ptok at 519-824-1212, ext. 7552, email him at bptok@guelphpolice.ca, leave an anonymous message for Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip online at www.csgw.tips.

Man injured with explosive, arrested
A Guelph man is facing a criminal charge after he reportedly injured himself with an explosive device.

Sunday morning, police were called to Guelph General Hospital regarding a patient who was being treated for hand injuries. Investigation determined he had made a small explosive device, which went off and caused his injuries.

Through investigation officers located the suspected detonation location near the Eramosa River at the end of Waterworks Place. No other injuries were reported.

A 27-year-old Guelph man is charged with possessing an explosive device. He will appear in court May 24.

Three girls charged with robbery
Three teenage girls are charged with robbery after a fourth was beaten up and had her phone stolen Friday night.

Approximately 10:20 p.m. police were called to a business on Speedvale Avenue East. A 15-year-old girl reported she met up with another girl nearby, but then two other girls arrived and all three assaulted her by spitting on her, knocking her to the ground and kicking her. It is believed one of the girls recorded the assault.

The victim’s phone was taken and smashed on the ground before the assailants fled. The victim declined medical attention.

Three girls aged 17, 16 and 14 have been arrested and charged with robbery. They were released with court dates in May.

Driver arrested after fleeing collision
A Puslinch male faces dangerous driving and other charges after fleeing a collision in Guelph Friday evening.

Approximately 6:45 p.m. a woman was slowing for stopped traffic on Speedvale Avenue West at Edinburgh Road North when her car was struck from behind. The other driver then switched lanes, mounted a curb and drove across the grass before fleeing the scene.

Investigation led to the identity of a suspect. Shortly after midnight, police were called for a disturbance outside a Woodlawn Road West business. One of the males involved in a physical altercation was the driver from the earlier hit and run and he was arrested.

A 35-year-old Puslinch man is charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop after a collision and driving while suspended. He will appear in court May 24.

Trespassing leads to criminal charges
Attempting to avoid a trespassing ticket led to criminal charges for a Guelph man who attempted to punch a police officer.

Approximately 3:15 p.m. Sunday a member of the Guelph Police Service was on foot patrol downtown when he spotted a male entering a business and knew him to be banned. The officer escorted the male from the business and intended to issue a ticket under the Trespass to Property Act.

The male became irate and tried to walk away. When the officer tried to stop him the male turned and attempted to punch the officer in the head. He was taken to the ground and arrested.

A 28-year-old Guelph man is charged with assaulting police and two counts of breaching a probation order. He will appear in court May 31.
