Assault with a weapon – Request to Identify
Okotoks Alberta – RCMP are asking for public assistance identifying two suspects who assaulted a man early Tuesday morning.  At approximately 2:00 am on August 14th, two males were seen checking car doors along Knowles Ave in Okotoks.  A member of the public was sitting in his vehicle when the two men checked his vehicle doors.  When the suspects realized the car had an occupant one man fled on foot and the second man hid close by.
