On Sept. 12, 2023, at 7:43 a.m., Red Deer RCMP were called to 30 Ave. and 67 St. for a disturbance taking place on a sidewalk.

Witnesses reported that they observed a male exit his vehicle, push a person off a bike, and a physical and verbal confrontation ensued. The male on the bike left the location, and the driver of the vehicle departed.

When police arrived on scene, extensive patrols were made and neither individual were located.

The property belonged to the driver of the vehicle, which he had tracked the location via GPS. The driver retrieved his property and later reported the incident to police.

RCMP are speaking to those involved in the incident.
