Red Deer city RCMP have arrested Kelly Gopher of Rocky Mountain House in relation to a stabbing late last week in the City.
On Nov. 26 at about 10:50 p.m., a 23-year-old Red Deer woman arrived at the Red Deer Regional Hospital with multiple stab wounds.
Police said it was alleged the victim and the suspect were walking together along the 6200 block of 61st Ave. when the suspect brandished a knife, stabbed the woman several times and then robbed her.
After the suspect left the scene, a passing motorist drove the victim to the hospital.
Police say this Good Samaritan was a male and it’s believed he was driving
either a pick-up truck or SUV. They also believe the man could have information pertinent to the investigation and are asking him to call RCMP at 403-343-5575.
Meanwhile, Gopher will appear in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday.
Investigators are also asking that anyone who may have witnessed this crime
or who may know the identity of the Good Samaritan to contact Red Deer city RCMP at 403-343-5575.
