Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for witnesses who can help them identify two men who assaulted and robbed a man and left him on a path near Spruce Drive on March 4.
The victim was walking on the walking path on the east side of Spruce Drive at approximately 1:30 pm on March 4 when he was approached by two men who asked him what time it was. When he stopped to check the time, they assaulted him, took his cell phone and MP3 player and left him in the snow on the side of the path. He regained consciousness a short time later and went to the hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia and later released.
In follow-up interviews with the victim, RCMP have obtained a description of one of the two assailants as an Aboriginal man with a stocky build and shoulder length black hair. No description is available for the second suspect. The investigation is ongoing.
