On April 19, 2016 as a result of an extensive investigation by Sylvan Lake RCMP, a 47-year-old Sylvan Lake male was charged with Aggravated Assault. The victim of this assault is a 10-month-old baby, who is currently recovering from injuries.
On March 12, 2016 an investigation was launched after a complaint was received in relation to a child with unexplained injuries who was taken to the hospital. Sylvan Lake RCMP were assisted by both Calgary and Edmonton General Investigation Sections, Forensic Identification Section, Special Tactical Operations and Red Deer Major Crimes Unit.
The baby has since been released from the hospital.
The Accused has been released on cash bail and is scheduled for a court appearance in May, 2016 in Red Deer Provincial Court.
In order to protect the identity of the victim, no names are being released. As this matter is now before the courts, no further information is being provided at this time.
