Police are on the lookout for two men after a couple of police cars were rammed and damaged with a stolen vehicle, Red Deer RCMP said on Wednesday.

The incident, which occurred on Dec. 20, began at 9 p.m. when a caller reported seeing a truck being driven in north Red Deer that was recognized as having been stolen from Blackfalds earlier that day.

RCMP soon located the truck, with two men in it, and followed it to the parking lot of an apartment building on 34th Street and 52nd Avenue.

As officers attempted to arrest the two suspects, the driver rammed the two police vehicles and fled the scene. Other RCMP vehicles followed the truck for a short distance but did not pursue it out of public safety concerns because there were pedestrians and other vehicles in the area.

No police officers or members of the public were injured during this incident. One RCMP vehicle had minor damage and the other more significant damage. The stolen truck was recovered in Springbrook on Dec. 22.

RCMP continue to search for the two men. The driver is described as Caucasian, 20 to 25 years old, blond hair, light complexion, tall with a slim build, wearing a dark baseball hat and a long-sleeved white shirt.

The passenger is Metis or Aboriginal, 20 to 25 years old, short, spiky, dark brown hair, dark-rimmed eye glasses and wearing a multi-coloured shirt.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
