Airdrie RCMP is asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects allegedly involved in a mischief incident July 3.
At approximately 5:20 p.m., a man driving a silver Ford Edge was observed cutting the lock off Prop Master’s after-hour pickup box on East Lake Boulevard, according to an RCMP release issued Aug. 6.
RCMP reported the man was accompanied by a woman who stayed in the vehicle while he cut the lock with yellow bolt cutters.
“No items were removed from the box,” stated the release.
The man is described as 25 to 35 years old, Caucasian with brown hair and tattoos on both arms. He was wearing a Blue Jays sleeveless shirt, black pants and red shoes at the time of the incident.
Collision linked to assault
A pedestrian who died following a collision with a semi-truck on Highway 2 near Crossfield Aug. 3 has been linked to a serious domestic violence assault in Calgary earlier that day.
Airdrie RCMP, RCMP Traffic Services and a collision analyst responded to the collision and determined the 46-year-old pedestrian was driving north on Highway 2 before pulling over north of the Highway 72 overpass, according to an RCMP release issued Aug. 3.
“The driver exited his vehicle and entered the driving lane on foot,” stated the release. “Despite the efforts of the semi driver to avoid a collision, the man was struck and killed by the semi.”
RCMP later learned the man killed in the collision was also involved in a serious domestic assault in the Calgary community of Dalhousie earlier that morning.
At approximately 9 a.m., Calgary Police Services (CPS) was called to the 4700 block of Dalton Drive N.W. following reports from a neighbour who heard a violent conflict happening inside, according to a CPS release issued Aug. 3.
Upon entering the residence, CPS officers discovered a woman in her late 30s with life-threatening injures “believed to be the result of a violent domestic assault,” according to the release.
“The woman was transported to hospital and her condition has since been upgraded to serious but stable,” the release read.
The victim’s husband fled the scene and it was later learned he was the man killed in the collision near Crossfield.
“The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the domestic assault but investigators are not looking for any other suspects,” stated the release.
“Due to the domestic nature of this incident, no further information can be released to protect the privacy of the victim and her family.”
