Calgary police seek dashcam footage in violent, targeted assault

Authorities believe the incident happened on Monday, August 29, when a man was forcibly confined to a vehicle by several other men.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) is asking for the public’s help via dash camera footage to locate a vehicle that was allegedly involved in a violent, targeted assault on a Calgary man last week.

According to a CPS press release, authorities believe the incident occurred on Monday, August 29, when a man was forcibly confined to a vehicle by several other men.

“The victim was physically assaulted in the vehicle as the group traveled from Calgary to Airdrie and eventually back to Calgary where the victim was released,” the news release read.

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

The CPS said investigators believe the incident was targeted, but are still investigating to determine the motive for the attack.

“As a result, police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating the vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects in the assault,” the statement read.

The vehicle is described as a 2010 silver SUV with tinted windows. CPS says investigators believe the vehicle stopped on the shoulder of the northbound lanes of Highway 2, just south of Yankee Valley Boulevard, between 9:10 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. the evening of the assault.

Police are looking for dash cam footage of anyone traveling back and forth on Highway 2 between Calgary and Airdrie on Aug. 29 between 9:10 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.

Those with information about the vehicle or the incident are asked to contact police at 403-266-1234.
