Arrests made after ‘road rage’ incident

  • Feb. 26, 2016 8:19 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP took an adult male and a male youth yesterday afternoon after a road rage incident in which the two males waved an imitation firearm at another driver then confronted him in the Bower neighbourhood.

RCMP received a report at approximately 1:30 p.m. that two males driving a grey Kia had waved what appeared to be a long barrel firearm at another driver.

The males then confronted the driver in an alley that intersected Boyce Street, but no physical engagement occurred. The two suspects re-entered their car and were immediately intercepted by RCMP in the parking lot of the Bower Mall.

RCMP executed a high risk arrest of the two males, which is standard procedure when there is any perceived risk to the safety of the public. The two were taken into custody without incident, and RCMP seized a replica BB gun. No one was injured in this incident.

Charges are pending and RCMP will issue an update with the name and charges against the adult male once those charges have been sworn before the courts.

The identity of the youth will not be released in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
