The Red Deer RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance to identify multiple suspects involved in an attempted robbery and assault that occurred on the CPR train bridge.
On Wednesday, May 18 shortly before 7 p.m., a female and male were approached by a group of eight individuals. During a physical altercation, one of the women in the group attempted to take the female victim’s purse, however she was unsuccessful. The group left the scene shortly after and police were called.
