On May 17, 2023, shortly after 7:00 a.m., Red Deer RCMP received a call from Alberta Sheriffs at the Red Deer Provincial Court house, who reported a female spray-painting the building.
While en route to the Court house, Red Deer RCMP received a second call advising the female now had a knife and was making threats. Numerous RCMP members responded and located the female, who was arrested and taken into custody.
No injuries were reported.
Charges are pending against a 42-year old female, a resident of Red Deer, who remains in custody awaiting a Judicial Interim Release Hearing.
The Red Deer RCMP would like to thank the Alberta Sheriffs for their partnership and early intervention in this matter.
If you have information that will assist the RCMP you are asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
