Red Deer RCMP are looking for witnesses to an alleged assault where a man was robbed and dumped into a garbage bin in February 2014.
The Brooks-area man recently reported the 15-month-old crime.
Police say on Feb. 20 or 21, 2014, the victim was passing through Red Deer when he met two men and went to a local pub with them.
The victim alleges while he was standing outside the pub, he was assaulted and robbed and left unconscious in a nearby dumpster. The next morning he regained consciousness when the waste management company emptied the dumpster into its truck.
The window was open and the driver heard the victim calling for help. He stopped the machinery to discover the victim climbing out of the back of the truck.
The victim sustained a number of injuries. He was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries.
Police believe the assault and robbery may have taken place in the alley behind Albert’s Family Restaurant and Lounge (5020 47 Ave.).
A composite drawing of a potential witness was released to the public.
