A stolen car from Regina was involved in a high-speed chase on Winnipeg streets early Tuesday morning.

At approximately 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, Winnipeg police attempted to make a traffic stop after witnessing a car operating in an unsafe manner in the area of Mountain Avenue and Salter Street. The vehicle, a Toyota Corolla, was reported stolen in Regina on Saturday.

The suspect refused to stop and continued driving in a reckless manner. He then slammed into a taxi near the Arlington Bridge, causing damage to both vehicles. There were no injuries.

The man fled the scene on foot and with help of the canine unit officers were able to track him down in a residence on Alfred Avenue.

Skyler Alexson, 20, is facing numerous charges. He was detained.
