Travis Patron of Redvers is facing charges after two women were seriously assaulted and taken to hospital in Regina.

28-year-old Travis Patron of Redvers, the leader of the right-wing Nationalist Party of Canada, and a candidate in Souris-Moose Mountain in the recent federal election, has been charged with assaulting two women in Regina.

Patron appeared in court November 12 on charges of assault causing bodily harm, aggravated assault and breach of probation

Patron was charged after two women were allegedly assaulted after declining a ride home from him in Regina on Nov. 2.

Police were dispatched at around 2:30 a.m. to the 1900 block of Victoria Avenue after receiving a report of an assault.

Police say two women, aged 33 and 43, had just been assaulted Patron. They both had visible injuries from the incident and were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The women and Patron had allegedly been in conversation earlier in the evening.

Patron offered them rides home, and when they declined, the alleged assault occurred, police say.

Shortly after 3 am on the night of the incident, the Regina Police Service was able to spot the suspect, walking on Victoria Avenue, but he refused to be interviewed.

Upon further investigation, police were able to determine his identity and arranged for him to be interviewed.

He was arrested and charged November 9 and made his first court appearance November 12 where he was released and placed on court-ordered conditions.

He will be back in court November 25.

Patron came last in Souris-Moose Mountain, with only 166 votes.
