Two men charged after targeted assault at CTrain Station
Police have determined that a stabbing that occurred at a CTrain Station earlier this week was targeted and the offenders and victim knew each other. Two men are now facing charges.
Police were initially called on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, at approximately 3:40 p.m., for reports of a male suffering from stab wounds at the Brentwood CTrain Station. Based on information from the scene it was quickly determined that the assault had taken place at Dalhousie CTrain Station. The victim was transported to hospital by EMS in serious but stable condition.
With the assistance of Calgary Transit, police were able to obtain suspect descriptions of two offenders and determine their movements following the assault.
As a result, officers located one suspect in a nearby strip mall and one suspect who had boarded a Calgary Transit bus. Both offenders were taken into custody without incident, less than half an hour after the initial incident.
Police believe that the victim and two offenders became involved in a dispute prior to the assault occurring.
“We are extremely grateful to our partners at Calgary Transit for their assistance with this investigation,” says Staff Sergeant Vince Hancott of the District 4 General Investigations Unit. “Through the use of their CCTV, our officers were able to quickly identify, locate and arrest the men responsible for this assault.”
Calvin Eugene GOERTZEN, 53, of Calgary has since been charged with one count each of assault with a weapon, failing to comply with release conditions and breach of a probation order. GOERTZEN will next appear in court on Monday, March 16, 2020.
Hartland Zackery HOLLOWAY, 40, of Calgary, has since been charged with one count of assault. HOLLOWAY will next appear in court on Monday, March 16, 2020.
Police would like to thank Calgary Transit for their vital assistance in this investigation.
