Quentin Lee Strawberry

Man accused of murder is back behind bars

Quentin Lee Strawberry charged with second-degree murder in April now charged with attempted murder

A man facing a second-degree murder charge, who was recently released on bail, has now been accused of trying to kill another man.

RCMP said members of the dowtown patrol unit were called to an apartment building on Monday morning. When police arrived, they found a man suffering a head wound after allegedly being attacked with a machete.

Quentin Strawberry, 38, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, obstructing a police officer and six counts of breaching his release conditions.

Strawberry was released on bail on Nov. 20. The O’Chiese First Nation man had been in custody since his arrest in April in connection with the March 29 death of Joseph Junior Alfred Gallant.

Arrested

Strawberry was granted bail on a number of conditions, including a 24-hour curfew, that he keep the peace, and not possessing anything intended to be used as a weapon.

Police allege that Strawberry failed to comply with all conditions and was charged with breaching them on Nov. 20, 25 and 26.

Strawberry will remain in custody until his next court date on Wednesday in Red Deer provincial court.
