Man in custody after early morning attacks send woman to hospital
At least one person has been sent to hospital in stable condition after a violent incident on the Bow River pedestrian path Monday morning.
A man attacked two people on the pathway near Crowchild Trail and Memorial Drive at around 8 a.m. MT, police said.
Acting Duty Insp. Leah Barber said the suspect also pushed another woman off a bike and was reported to be throwing rocks at people. She said there appears to be no reason for the attacks.
Guy Lacourciere was walking to work when a passerby threw a rock at him.
"He picked up a rock and then I turned and he kind of started following me and then the next thing I know he just 'whack' on my right ear with the rock."
One man was taken in to custody. The suspect, who is in his 30s, was taken to hospital for a mental health assessment.
Investigators interviewed several witnesses to the incidents.
