A woman has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with an early morning stabbing in Ponoka Jan. 30 that sent a man to hospital.

It was a sight to see at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning, police cars and ambulances flooding the streets to a home across from Ponoka’s Culture and Recreation Centre.

Inside the home, RCMP Sgt. Glenn Demeare, said an altercation had turned physical and Victoria Anderson of Edmonton is accused to stabbing a man twice in the torso.

The victims’ name cannot be released at this time but Demeare said the man has undergone one surgery and is currently recovering in Red Deer hospital.

The relationship between the two is unknown. Anderson is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 5.

Not so slick getaway

Two Ontario residents were a pit stop in Ponoka Jan. 28 when RCMP stopped the vehicle with a stolen license plate and discovered a significant amount of stolen property.

Corey Johnston, and an unidentified male who gave RCMP a false name, were charged with possession of stolen property.

Demeare said RCMP are still sorting through the property and a monetary assessment cannot be made at this time.

Theft of assorted meat

On the night of Jan. 30 and Jan. 31 between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. a large amount of assorted meat was stolen from a garage in town.

An address of the residence could not be provided because the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Ponoka RCMP at (403) 783-4472.

Gun found near 7-Eleven

An unusual discovery was made by a passerby Jan. 30 when a sawed off .22 calibre rifle was found lying in the intersection of Highways 2A and 53 Avenue, near Ponoka’s 7-Eleven convenience store.

Const. Brian Harper told the Ponoka News the rifle has been sent away for analysis.

Thefts from vehicles

RCMP are still investigating two incidents in which items were stolen from vehicles in Ponoka.

On Jan. 25 cigarettes and money was stolen from a vehicle on a Ponoka residence, and on Jan. 31 a cellphone was taken from a vehicle.

The matter is still under investigation and none of the stolen items has been recovered.

Mischief and damage to property

A keyed vehicle and broken rear window are still being investigated by RCMP.

On Jan. 25 vehicle owners woke up to find one car had been keyed while on Jan. 30 another’s back window had been broken.

No one has been charged and anyone with information is asked to call Ponoka RCMP.
