A seemingly random attack and alleged kidnapping in a Red Deer alley has police looking for witnesses.

A seemingly random attack and alleged kidnapping in a Red Deer alley has police looking for witnesses.

Red Deer RCMP said a man was walking down an alley behind his Eastview residence when he was jumped by three people on July 25 at about 2:10 a.m.

He was assaulted, then taken into a vehicle and dropped off in the Morrisroe neighbourhood, where police found the victim after 911 was contacted.

According to a police release, as the victim walked a truck pulled up alongside him and stopped. The male driver and two male passengers got out and threw the victim into the box of the truck before driving away.

A short distance later, the truck stopped and the victim was pulled out and assaulted before the three alleged kidnappers drove away, leaving the victim in an alley in Morrisroe.

The victim suffered scrapes and bruises, but he was not robbed. Police said the victim did not know his attackers.

Police describe the driver of the truck as a Caucasian male, about 1.77 metres tall (five-foot-10), with dark hair and was wearing a black jacket.

The first passenger is described as about 1.72 metres tall (five-foot-eight), with blonde hair and wore red shoes with white laces.

Police said the second passenger wore a grey hoodie with a zipper with the hood up.

The truck is described as a newer Dodge Ram pick-up truck crew cab — possibly a 2500 — with dark rims, a cover on the box, steps on each side, extended side mirrors with yellow lights on them and tinted tail lights.

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