Man charged in relation to two violent attacks

The Calgary Police Service has charged one man in relation to two violent attacks.

At approximately 8:40 a.m., on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017, officers responded to a call in the 10,000 block of Macleod Trail S.E., for reports of an armed man. When they arrived on scene they found a woman who had been assaulted. It is alleged the man punched the woman, causing her to collapse. The man then left the scene.

He walked across the parking lot and entered another business in the plaza. He waited until he was alone with a female staff member at which time it is alleged he violently attacked the woman, physically and sexually.

EMS personnel that were in the area on an unrelated call were flagged down by a citizen who heard screaming from the location of the assault. When they arrived on scene they found the woman in severe distress. The suspect remained on scene.

Officers who were still in the area responding to the first assault, were able to arrest the suspect without incident.

Both attacks are believed to be random in nature.

Bogdan RADULESCU, 32, of Calgary, is charged with one count each of attempted murder, aggravated sexual assault, uttering threats, choking to overcome, and two counts of aggravated assault.

He will next appear in court on Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017.

Anyone who observed suspicious behaviour in the above-mentioned area in the hours leading up to the incidents is asked to call the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers through one of the following methods:
