Second person charged for alleged assault at anti-racism rally in Red Deer

A second person is facing charges following an alleged assault during an anti-racism rally in Red Deer.

Police say Taylor Michelle McNallie, 29, of Calgary, has been charged with assault with a weapon in relation to an incident that occurred Sept. 20.

She is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Nov. 10.

”The Alberta RCMP would like to remind citizens that they are afforded the right to peacefully demonstrate; however, this does not mean unlawful behaviour will be tolerated,” police said in a statement Friday.

“The role of police is to ensure those who unlawfully interfere with or threaten the safety of any person or property will be held accountable in accordance with the laws of Canada.”

A Penhold man, 42-year-old Trevor Lyle Roy, had previously been charged with assault in relation to another incident at the same rally.

He is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 17.
