Red Deer RCMP arrest second suspect in assault

Court appearance set for Wednesday

A second man was charged in connection with an alleged assault on a woman after her car was stolen from Normandeau in December.

Red Deer RCMP identified the suspect through a series of unrelated investigations after he was arrested after an alleged hit and run in a stolen truck on Dec. 20.

Police said the truck struck several parked vehicles in Glendale before two male occupants fled on foot. RCMP contained the area and Police Dog Services located one of the suspects hiding in a residential yard on Northey Avenue.

A 33-year-old Red Deer man was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of counterfeit money, assault and theft of fuel.

He was also charged with theft of motor vehicle, careless use of a firearm and possession of prohibited firearm with ammunition in connection to the Dec. 14 incident involving the assault of a 25-year-old woman after she found two men in her stolen car at a nearby gas station shortly after her she reported the theft.

Police said she was struck and kicked by one of the suspects when she confronted them, and they fled the scene on foot.

The man is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday.

A 32-year-old Red Deer man was also recently charged with theft of a motor vehicle, careless use of a firearm, and possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition in connection to the Dec. 14 incident.
