Incident occured in Springbrook late Wednesday night

RCMP continue to investigate a robbery that occurred on a rural road south of Springbrook Airport that left a male with serious injuries on Sept. 27th. The victim reported he met a female thorough an online date and drove to a rural location south of the Springbrook airport. While parked in the area the victim was approached by three additional suspects and attacked. The incident appeared to be a planned robbery.

The three additional suspects included two males and a female with a medium build.

On Sept. 27th at approximately 11:15 p.m., a resident of Springbrook was robbed and attacked by several individuals armed with a firearm and machete style knife. A struggle ensued between the male and his attackers relinquishing them of their firearm. The attackers then proceeded to continue striking the male with a machete style knife causing serious bodily harm. The male then had his vehicle stolen after being attacked. The male was able to walk away from the scene, into Springbrook, where a vehicle stopped and assisted the male with his injuries and calling for emergency services. The male was transported by ground ambulance to Red Deer Regional Hospital for treatment. His wounds are considered serious, but not life threatening.
