Red Deer RCMP are asking for public assistance to track down two hit-and-run suspects who first struck a bicyclist with their vehicle, then beat him up.
At about 3 a.m. Sunday, Red Deer RCMP responded to a report of a seriously injured person at 5239 53rd Ave.
Officers found a 36-year old man who had been struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle. He was then beaten by two male suspects.
The victim was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital.
The male suspects put the victim’s bicycle in the back of their vehicle and then fled by reversing southbound on 53rd Avenue.
They turned east on 52nd Street and continued toward Gaetz Avenue. The vehicle is described as an SUV, possibly a 2005 GMC Jimmy, that is either red or maroon, with potential damage to the front bumper.
The first suspect is described as a slim Caucasian male in his late 20s, about five foot four, with curly brown hair, glasses and facial stubble.
The second suspect is a large man, 30 to 35 years old, about six feet tall with short brown, thinning hair and a beard. He weighs about 300 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Red Deer RCMP 403-343-5575.
