On May 17, 2023, shortly after 7:00 a.m., Red Deer RCMP received a call from Alberta Sheriffs at the Red Deer Provincial Court house, who reported a female spray-painting the building.

While en route to the Court house, Red Deer RCMP received a second call advising the female now had a knife and was making threats. Numerous RCMP members responded and located the female, who was arrested and taken into custody.

No injuries were reported.

Charges are pending against a 42-year old female, a resident of Red Deer, who remains in custody awaiting a Judicial Interim Release Hearing.

The Red Deer RCMP would like to thank the Alberta Sheriffs for their partnership and early intervention in this matter.
