A Red Deer woman is charged with attempted murder after allegedly trying to run down her mother with a car in north Red Deer last Thursday evening.

Red Deer City RCMP responded to a complaint of hit and run near Gaetz Avenue and 67th Street in Red Deer around 8:30 p.m. They allege there was a verbal and physical confrontation between a mother and a daughter in an alley behind the ATB Financial.

Witnesses told investigators the daughter got into a truck and backed up quickly, hitting another vehicle and appeared to have driven the vehicle directly at her mother, hitting her. The driver fled the scene.

Diane Stewert, 60, was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Stacey Stewert, 32, was arrested without incident near Hwy 597 and Hwy 815 by Blackfalds RCMP. She is charged with attempted murder and multiple other charges.

A court date has not been set yet.
