RCMP are investigating a second stabbing in less than a week on the CPR walking bridge in Red Deer.

RCMP are investigating a second stabbing in less than a week on the CPR walking bridge in Red Deer.

A man was crossing to the north end of the bridge around 1:30 a.m. Friday when he was approached by three men who demanded his wallet.

Police say a “scuffle” took place and the victim was stabbed in the hand by one of the suspects.

He ran away and was treated for the minor injury to his hand at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.

RCMP are asking the public for help in locating the three suspects.

The first is described as aboriginal, approximately 1.88 metres (six feet two inches) tall and believed to be in his 30s. He has short hair, a half-sleeve tattoo on his left arm (the design is unknown) and was wearing a short black leather vest with no shirt underneath. He may have bruising or scraping on his face from the fight.

The other two suspects are described as Caucasian, tall, skinny and also thought to be in their 30s. They were both wearing blue jeans. One wore a blue hoodie while the other had on a white tank top.

Police are also still investigating a stabbing from July 5 that happened on the same bridge.

At this time, the incidents are not believed to be linked.

Anyone with information that may help in locating or identifying the three suspects is asked to call RCMP at 403-343-5575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at to remain anonymous.
