Two people face charges after a number of vehicles, including a police cruiser, were smashed in the Highland Green neighbourhood on Sunday morning.

Police responded to a complaint of suspicious activity in an area parking lot as a citizen noted people attempting to enter parked vehicles. Several vehicles were struck as suspects attempted to elude police.

The suspect truck was bearing a stolen licence plate. Police positioned the cruiser behind the truck and approached the driver’s side of the truck. The driver then reversed and repeatedly rammed the police cruiser before speeding from the parking lot. The fleeing vehicle struck a number of parked vehicles and one moving vehicle before hitting a tree in a residential yard.

The male driver and female passenger ran from the truck.

The woman was located in the back yard of a residence. Police dog services later located the man on a walking path in Riverside Meadows.

A 35-year-old Red Deer man has been charged with assault on a police officer with a weapon; flight from police; two counts of possession of stolen property; dangerous operation of a motor vehicle; four counts of breach of an undertaking; and failing to remain at the scene. He was to appear in court on Monday.
