Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify a man who forced a woman to stop her vehicle, attempted to get in, and then followed her in his truck after she drove away.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on April 14th, a 19-year-old woman driving on 32nd St. in the Westpark neighbourhood encountered a man in a truck who waved at her and attempted to get her to pull over.

When she didn’t, he pulled his truck in front of her, cutting her off and forcing her to come to a stop.

He approached her vehicle and asked her to join him at a bar and then attempted unsuccessfully to enter her locked car.

After the suspect made several attempts to block her from leaving, the woman was able to drive away. The suspect then followed her in his truck for some distance before she was able to lose him and go home safely.

The suspect is described as having darker skin, between 5’7 – 6′ tall, in his late 20s to early 30s with a muscular build. He had black, spiked up short hair and was wearing a light coloured zip-up sweater and was driving a newer model F150, dark grey or silver, with an Alberta license plate.

Police advise, if you feel you are being followed or are otherwise in danger, to call 911; to drive to the nearest police station; to lock your vehicle and keep the windows closed; not to drive home and to report any similar or suspicious occurrences to police.

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