Wanted Kitchener man arrested after ramming two cruisers, fleeing from police

A 30-year-old Kitchener man has been charged with 24 offences following an attempted flight from police in that city.

It was on Saturday morning just before 7 a.m. when police responded to the area of Greenfield Avenue and Traynor Avenue for a reported suspicious vehicle.

Police said the driver of that vehicle was identified as a man wanted on a warrant for outstanding charges.

As officers attempted to apprehend that male, it’s alleged the suspect rammed two police cruisers and intentionally drove through a fence to escape.

That man was taken into custody shortly after by the service’s Special Response Unit and Canine Unit.

That 30-year-old Kitchener man now faces the following charges:

  • Impaired operation of a vehicle
  • Possession of stolen property over $5,000
  • Careless use of ammunition
  • Possess weapon contrary to prohibition order
  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle (multiple counts)
  • Flight from police
  • Assault police
  • Resist arrest


The investigation is still ongoing – and further charges are anticipated.
