Police investigating domestic assault in Dalhousie

The Calgary Police Service Domestic Conflict Unit is investigating after a serious domestic assault occurred in the community of Dalhousie.

At approximately 9 a.m., on Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017, police were called to a residence in the 4700 block of Dalton Drive N.W., after a neighbour heard a violent domestic conflict occurring inside.

Officers arrived to find a woman in her late 30s with life-threatening injuries that are believed to be the result of a violent domestic assault. The woman’s husband had left the scene before officers arrived and police officers immediately flooded the area to try to locate him.

The woman was transported to hospital and her condition has since been upgraded to serious but stable.

While police were trying to locate the husband, it is believed he was involved in a fatal pedestrian collision with a semi-truck on the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, north of the Highway 72 overpass near Crossfield, Alta.

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the domestic assault but investigators are not looking for any other suspects. Airdrie RCMP continue to investigate the fatal collision near Crossfield.

Due to the domestic nature of this incident, no further information can be released to protect the privacy of the victim and her family.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through either of the following methods:
