Information sought in southeast assault

We continue to investigate an altercation between a man and a woman that occurred earlier this month in the southeast community of Seton, and are encouraging witnesses to come forward.

On Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023, at approximately 11 p.m., a woman was assaulted by a man in a grassy area near Seton Way and Seton Drive S.E. Investigators believe there were witnesses who drove by the area at the time of the assault and honked their horns in an effort to stop the assault, and police are looking to speak to them.

The woman sought help from a nearby resident who called police. After speaking with the victim and the complainant, police were able to quickly locate the suspect who was taken into custody.

As the assault is believed to be domestic in nature, no further information including the name of the accused, who has been charged, will be released to protect the identity of the victim. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
