Two Arrested in Robbery and Stabbing of Cab Driver

Two Kehewin men have been arrested after stabbing their cab driver and stealing his car on Friday.

The driver was taking the two from St. Paul to Kehewin when they demanded he pull over. After pulling over the suspects demanded money and started to attack him. The victim was stabbed in the leg with a knife and suffered cuts to his hands but was able to flee from the vehicle. The suspects then stole the vehicle leaving the victim stranded on the road. The victim who suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries was taken to hospital by a driver who passed through a while later.

Members from Cold Lake, Elk Point, St. Paul, and Police Dog Services all worked together to track the suspects down and recovered the stolen car in a field on the Kehewin Cree Nation.

A search warrant was executed at two separate residences on the reservation and both suspects were arrested without incident.
