We are asking the public for their help to locate a vehicle believed to have been used in a violent, targeted assault of a Calgary man that took place last week.

It is believed that on Monday, Aug. 29, 2022, a man was forcibly confined to a vehicle by several men. The victim was physically assaulted in the vehicle as the group travelled from Calgary to Airdrie and eventually back to Calgary where the victim was released.

After being released from the vehicle, the assault was reported to police. The victim was treated at hospital for his injuries and later released.

Investigators believe this was a targeted incident, however, officers are still investigating to determine the motive.

As a result, police are asking for the public’s help to locate the vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects during the assault. The vehicle is described as a 2010 silver SUV with tinted windows. It is believed the vehicle pulled over on the shoulder of the northbound lanes of Highway 2, just south of Yankee Valley Blvd., between 9:10 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., on the night of the assault.
