A man accused of assaulting a woman who had come to his house to purchase an item from him will stand trial in Red Deer provincial court in mid-July.

Red Deer City RCMP were called at about 5 p.m. on Feb. 19 to a 911 call at a home in the Clearview subdivision.

Police allege that a woman had responded to an online ad for an item for sale. She told investigators she had gone to the seller’s home to view the item and was pushed and shoved once inside.

Police allege that she kicked the suspect and escaped, and then called for help from inside her vehicle.

Cory Michael Schafer, 40, is to stand trial on July 14 on charges of assault, uttering threats and breaching a probation order.
