Red Deer RCMP investigating possible historical sex assaults

January 11, 2022 2:38 PM

Red Deer, Alta. – The RCMP have initiated an investigation into possible historical sex assaults that occurred in various locations in Red Deer during the 1990s. The RCMP have identified a local Red Deer business owner as a suspect, and are seeking information and disclosure from potential victims. 

The Red Deer RCMP came into possession of several dated video recordings that show women involved in what appears to be non-consensual sexual encounters with a Red Deer man. The involved male has been identified, however the females have not been identified. It is possible that the females worked in the hospitality industry or visited licenced establishments prior to the video recordings being made.

“It is likely that the females in these recordings may have been drugged or otherwise incapacitated by intoxicants” says Sergeant Ian Ihme, Red Deer RCMP Detachment.  “We understand that this is an unusual request, but we have evidence of a possible crime and we are committed to taking all measures to investigate.”
