Sylvan Lake RCMP arrest two after collision and property damage

Members of the Sylvan Lake RCMP attended a call at a residence near Lincoln Street and Lambertson Place.

A vehicle crashed into a fence mid afternoon on Monday in Sylvan Lake near Lincoln Street and Lumberton Drive.

 

At approximately 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28 – a number of residents of Sylvan Lake witnessed a vehicle collide with a fence surrounding a home near Lincoln Street and Lambertson Place.

A number of calls to Sylvan Lake RCMP were made. One witness reports she heard a loud bang before going to see what had made the sound. Witnesses say two individuals were standing near the vehicle when they looked outside.

As residents began to gather outside of their homes, witnesses state a verbal altercation ensued between the male and female. According to witnesses, the pair took off on foot down a back alley with residents of the area again making calls to the RCMP to state the duo had taken off.

RCMP arrived on scene only moments later and began a pursuit on foot asking residents of the area to stay inside their homes. Sylvan Lake RCMP have yet to release details confirming any arrests.

Once members arrived, the two male occupants of the vehicle fled on foot. With the assistance of Police Dog Services, both suspects were arrested a short distance away and taken into custody without incident. There are numerous charges pending from this incident, and RCMP continue to investigate.

Sylvan Lake RCMP have arrested the two men who attempted to flee police on foot after the motor vehicle collision and property damage in the Lakewood Landing neighbourhood.

An update will be issued once those charges have been sworn before the courts.
