Suspects held after pizza shop incident
Two men face robbery and other charges after allegedly assaulting a Red Deer restaurant worker on Wednesday.
David Fehr, 44, and Ernest Bedore, 42, are charged with robbery, forcible confinement and overcoming resistance to commission of offence after allegedly robbing the Dominos Pizza at 50th Avenue and 45th Street.
The men allegedly entered the restaurant around 11 p.m. saying they needed to warm up. Shortly after, police say one of the men went behind the counter and told the lone male employee to leave.
The employee had attempted to call 911 when one of the suspects allegedly began choking him.
The male employee attempted to flee, but was physically assaulted by both suspects, police say. The employee eventually escaped and contacted police.
RCMP located both suspects on foot.
Fehr and Bedore remain in custody and will appear in provincial court Friday.
