Police investigating random road rage attack
The Calgary Police Service is investigating after a woman was beaten by two men during a road rage incident.
At approximately 5:20 p.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, the woman was driving a black Dodge Caravan southbound on 4 Street N.W., near the intersection of 40 Avenue N.W. A BMW attempted to pass her, but was unsuccessful due to oncoming traffic.
The BMW then aggressively tailgated the victim to her destination, making contact with the rear of the victim’s vehicle at one point. When the victim stopped her vehicle at the West Mount Pleasant Arena (located at 2408 6 St. N.W.), the BMW boxed her in and two men exited the vehicle.
The men demanded that the women get out and fight them, and when she refused, they used a hockey stick to break her vehicle’s windows. The woman, whose child was also inside the vehicle, tried to flee the scene but was stopped when her vehicle hit the BMW. The men then pulled her out of her vehicle and assaulted her, at times using the hockey stick as a weapon.
The men then fled the scene in the BMW.
The suspects are both described as being in their early 20s, with dark brown or black hair and medium builds. One was wearing light grey or white clothing on his upper body.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as silver, two-door BMW car with an Alberta licence plate. It would likely have extensive damage to the front passenger side and possibly the front bumper.
Anyone with information on this incident, or the identity of the two men, is asked to call the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
