An officer of the Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) was near by and responded to the area. The suspect male was located on the side of the highway and arrested as a matter of ensuring his safety.

The suspect male was assessed by EMS and then transported to the St. Paul RCMP Detachment. The officer was transported to the hospital and later transferred by EMS to Edmonton for additional assessment and treatment for serious non-life threatening injuries.
