Police look for clues after assault near Bower Ponds

At about 12 p.m. on July 29, a Red Deer resident was walking near the boat launch at Bower Ponds when it is alleged he was attacked by an unknown person.

A 37-year-old man required medical attention after he reported being attacked near the dock at Bower Ponds at noon on Monday.

The male suspect hit the victim repeatedly in the face and head and stole the victim’s expensive Oakley sunglasses and Oakley hat before fleeing the scene.

“Given the fact that there is an individual out enjoying the park and trail system and allegedly he is assaulted, it’s certainly concerning,” said Red Deer City RCMP Cpl. Leanne Molzahn on Wednesday.

Anyone with information that can assist police in the investigation please contact Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.
