Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify two men who assaulted a woman after she located them in her stolen car.

RCMP received a report shortly before 10 a.m. on Dec. 14th that a white 2014 Honda Civic had been stolen from the Normandeau neighbourhood, and almost immediately received a second report that the victim had located her stolen car with two men inside at a nearby gas station on Gaetz Avenue.

When the victim, a 25-year-old woman, confronted the suspects, one assaulted her by striking and kicking at her; both males then fled the scene on foot. The victim did not sustain any serious injuries in the assault.

RCMP contained the area and conducted an exhaustive search with support from Police Dog Services, but did not locate the suspects. Police found a loaded sawed off shotgun, an expandable baton and a large knife in the recovered vehicle.

RCMP have obtained surveillance images of the two suspects and are looking for public assistance to identify them. The investigation continues.

If you recognize either suspect or have information about this incident, contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
