Lethbridge, Alberta – Lethbridge Police have charged a 37-year-old male in connection with an incident where a female out for a run was followed by a man in a vehicle.
On August 27, 2023 at approximately 8 p.m. a 32-year-old woman was running along Mayor Magrath Drive South. When she turned east along 6 Avenue South she observed a distinctive white truck driven by a lighter-skinned male with dark-rimmed glasses, following her. The vehicle pulled up ahead of her and stopped. As she continued running the same vehicle pulled up in front of her and stopped again. As she passed, the vehicle slowly drove by her, then stopped.
