Red Deer RCMP are looking for help identifying a man who forced a woman to stop her vehicle and then attempted to climb in.
Police said that around 1 a.m. last Friday a 19-year-old woman was driving on 32nd Street in West Park when she encountered a man in a truck who waved at her and attempted to get her to pull over.
When she didn’t, he pulled his truck in front of her, cutting her off and forcing her to come to a stop. He approached her vehicle and asked her to join him at a bar and then attempted unsuccessfully to enter her locked car.
After the suspect made several attempts to block her from leaving, the woman was able to drive away. The suspect then followed her in his truck for some distance before she was able to lose him and go home safely.
The suspect is described as darker skinned, 1.7m to 1.83m (five-foot-seven to six feet) tall in his late 20s or early 30s. He has a muscular build with short, black, spiked-up hair. He was wearing a light-coloured zip-up sweater
