  • East District, Alberta – On Oct. 9, 2018, RCMP members from the Elk Point Detachment, Cold Lake, Bonnyville Detachments along with Cold Lake Police Dog Services (PDS), and the Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) were involved in a pursuit that spanned through Fishing Lake, Frog Lake, Bonnyville County, Elizabeth Metis Settlement, and briefly into Saskatchewan. RCMP Air Services were also utilized which was crucial in bringing the pursuit to an end without injuries.

    “All RCMP members involved in this incident used teamwork and co-ordination to bring a safe resolution to the pursuit,” says Constable Guillaume Wilson (EADRCRU).  “They demonstrated a high level of professionalism despite the dangers they faced and the intensity of the situation.”

    This incident started on the morning of Oct. 9, 2018 when multiple detachments conducted a joint operation to apprehend a male wanted on several outstanding warrants for serious offences. While in Fishing Lake, police believed they spotted the male inside a vehicle that failed to stop for police and fled at high speed. A pursuit was initiated which went through Fishing Lake, Frog Lake, a section of Bonnyville County, and into the Elizabeth Metis Settlement. Once inside the Elizabeth Metis Settlement, the suspect vehicle was able to evade police after striking the windshield of a police vehicle with a metal pipe.

    Police believed the suspect vehicle was hiding in an area along the Alberta/Saskatchewan border and were able to contain this area with the help of the Saskatchewan RCMP until Alberta RCMP Air Services could arrive.

    “Many people believe that crossing provincial lines will force us to cease efforts to apprehend them, but this is certainly not the case” says Constable Guillaume Wilson. “We are Canada’s police force and provincial borders will not prevent us from stopping criminals and keeping Canadians safe.”

    Air Services located the suspect vehicle in a trail system along the Alberta/ Saskatchewan border and police vehicles on the ground quickly surrounded the area. This led to members successfully deflating one of the fleeing vehicle’s tires with a spike belt. Following this, EADRCRU and Cold Lake PDS re-engaged the suspect vehicle in a pursuit which led them through the Elizabeth Metis Settlement again until the fleeing vehicle was no longer able to continue and its occupants fled on foot.

    All occupants were quickly arrested and taken into custody without incident. The vehicle used in this incident was later confirmed to be stolen.

    Desmond Spence (18) and Cody Spence (19) of Edmonton were charged with multiple Criminal Code offences which include:

    • Assault on a police officer with a weapon
    • Flight from police
    • Resisting a peace officer
    • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
    • Failing to comply with a probation order

    Both were remanded into custody after a judicial hearing and are scheduled to appear in Lac La Biche Provincial Court via CCTV on Oct. 15, 2018.

    A 16-year-old male from Cold Lake, a 17-year-old female from Frog Lake, and a 14-year-old female from Elizabeth Metis Settlement, all of whom cannot be named due to the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act were charged with multiple Criminal Code offences which include:

    • Assault on a police officer with a weapon
    • Resisting a peace officer
    • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
    • Flight from police

    The 16-year-old male and 14-year-old female are also facing charges for failing to comply with conditions.

    All youth were released on conditions after a judicial hearing and are scheduled to appear in Cold Lake Provincial Court on Oct. 24, 2018.

    Man charged with sexual assault; police seek additional complainants

    The Edmonton Police Service has charged Vincent Noseworthy, 39, in connection to a sexual assault and believes there may be additional complainants.

    On Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, an adult female reported to police that she had been sexually assaulted by a male, identified as Vincent Noseworthy, on Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018.

    The female reportedly met Noseworthy, who she became acquainted with through Tinder, for a date. The two then drove to a rural location outside of Edmonton in the female’s vehicle where Noseworthy allegedly confined her and violently sexually and physically assaulted her.

    Noseworthy was arrested on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018 and has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, choking with the intent to overcome resistance, assault and unlawful confinement. He has since been released on conditions.

    Noseworthy is active on online dating websites and may use the name “Vinnie Worth.”  As a result, investigators believe there may be additional complainants and are concerned that he may commit another offence against someone while in the community.

    In the interest of public safety, police are releasing a photo of Noseworthy and are encouraging any additional complainants to come forward.
