The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) has charged a 29-year-old man in connection with three violent assaults that occurred on the morning of Saturday, July 18.
Police were called to the area of 151 Avenue and 93 Street after it was reported that an unknown male threw an object at a homeowner’s window and then allegedly attempted to stab him after being confronted. The homeowner luckily did not sustain any serious injuries.
The accused fled down the street, while allegedly vandalizing vehicles parked on the roadway, and proceeded to stab another man who was on his front lawn. The 45-year-old victim sustained non-life- threatening injuries but was treated by paramedics and taken to hospital.
The accused continued to flee down the street and assaulted a third male, who was taking photos of the incident with his phone. The complainant managed to get away unharmed.
The accused then fled on his skateboard and was last seen in the area of 88 Street and 137 Avenue.
Members found the accused around 1 p.m. in the area of 87 Street and 146 Avenue later the same day and pursued him on foot. The accused was combative with officers and a Taser had to be deployed to make the arrest. The accused was taken to hospital by EMS before being lodged in custody.
Jared Graham Cyre, 29, is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon (x2), assault, possession of a dangerous weapon, mischief under $5,000(x7), obstruction, and resisting arrest.
Investigators also determined that the accused allegedly tried to set fire to a vehicle previous to the above incidents. He is facing a charge of attempted arson as a result.
