The Edmonton Police Service is investigating a vicious road rage incident that left a 34-year-old Edmonton woman in hospital with two broken arms.
Southeast Division patrol officers responded to a report of a road rage incident near 76 Avenue and 87 Street, at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
It was reported to police, that a 34-year-old female motorist had been driving northbound on 87 Street when she approached a silver Pontiac Wave that was stopped in the eastbound lane, as she attempted to turn onto 77 Avenue.
The female motorist honked her horn, before passing the vehicle. It is alleged the suspect vehicle then followed the woman to a nearby residential address, where she exited her vehicle to go inside.
The male suspect then allegedly ran up to the female complainant, before striking her on both arms with a crow bar. Paramedics treated and transported the woman to hospital, where she underwent surgery for broken arms.
