Edson RCMP seek witnesses to altercation at local licensed establishment
Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in an altercation occurring at a licensed establishment in the Town of Edson.
On the evening of July 21st, 2017 two patrons were leaving Score, in the basement of the Moose Creek Hotel, when a physical altercation is believed to have taken place in the stairwell. This altercation continued in the parking lot outside the establishment at which time it was broken up by staff.
The injuries suffered by the victim were not immediately noticed, but nonetheless serious. The victim was hospitalized for nearly a week. Police were notified about the incident 10 days later on July 31st, at which time the investigation began.
The suspect is described as being an approximately 35 year old Caucasian man, about 6’1” in height, 210 lbs in weight with a thin face and dark hair.
“To date we have spoken to staff at the establishment as well as some patrons and received their co-operation, but have yet to identify a suspect,” states Cst. Alex Ayres of Edson RCMP. “We are hoping someone’s memory may get jogged and they may have some information which will assist us in identifying and speaking to this person.”
Edson RCMP continue to investigate and are requesting anyone with knowledge of this occurrence to contact them at (780) 723-8800, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or online at http://www.crimestoppers.ab.ca/edmonton/.
