The public is asked to keep an eye out for suspects who caused non-life threatening injuries to an officer during a traffic stop.
Last night around 5:30, the Beaverlodge RCMP detatchment were called to a suspected domestic dispute that was occurring on the roadway of Range Road 112, northwest of Hythe.
The RCMP officer located a vehicle matching the description from the complaint, and a man was sitting in the driver’s seat of a dirty, black, 4-door car. A woman was with him in the vehicle.
During the traffic stop, the RCMP officer asked the driver to step out of his vehicle, but he put the car in gear and quickly accelerated away.
The officer was dragged approximately 50 metres before letting go of the vehicle, and later released from hospital after being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
RCMP describe the driver they are looking for as a 45-50 year old Caucasian man, with a scruffy grey beard. He was wearing a black jacket, baseball cap and dentures.
The woman is also Caucasian and about 45-50 years old as well, with chin length blond hair.
