Stratford Police located a Kitchener man Wednesday, a little less than a year after he was allegedly involved in an attempted assault against officers in an apartment building parking lot.

According to police, who featured him in their weekly Wanted Wednesday press release only hours before they learned he was in custody on charges in another municipality, a warrant was issued for Jay Foreman, 36, following an incident on Aug. 31, 2018.

Officers initially approached Foreman while responding to a complaint of a suspicious person in the Walmart parking lot. When they attempted to speak with him, Foreman fled from the area in a vehicle police later learned was stolen.

Police then spoke with a woman who Foreman had left behind at the Walmart and who had outstanding warrants for her arrest. The  woman attempted to flee from police on foot and ran toward the parking lot of a nearby apartment building, where Foreman was waiting in the stolen vehicle.

After officers arrested the woman, they attempted to approach Foreman, who once again fled from scene, this time allegedly attempting to run over the officers as he left.

After confirming his identity, police issued a warrant for Foreman’s arrest on charges of resisting arrest, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, assault with a weapon, possession of property obtained by crime, and breach of probation.

Police would like to thank those who helped them located Foreman.
