On July 12th, at approximately 12:50 a.m., Innisfail RCMP responded to a complaint for a distraught female who was camping where the Red Deer and Medicine Rivers meet.

Innisfail RCMP made contact with the female who stated she had been assaulted by her male companion. The victim was stuck on the South side of the river and could not leave the situation.

Due to the assistance from multiple agencies and the public, the victim was located and RCMP were able to arrest the male.

Fritz Solberg, 38, of Lacombe was arrested without incident and was charged with assault causing bodily harm; choking to overcome resistance, intimidation, uttering threats and theft under $5,000.

Solberg has been remanded to attend Red Deer Provincial Court on July 16th.
