More charges laid after anti-racism rally in Red Deer

·1 min read

A man from Penhold, Alta., faces additional charges from an anti-racism rally that turned violent in Red Deer on Sept. 20.

Trevor Lyle Roy, 42, has been charged with assault in what the RCMP refer to as a third incident that occurred during the rally. Roy was charged earlier this month with another alleged assault that occurred just as the rally was getting underway in a city park.

The RCMP declined to provide any details about the alleged attack or the victim's injuries.

"As this matter is now before the courts, no further information is able to be provided about the nature of that assault or like the details of the investigation," said Cpl. Deanna Fontaine.

Last week, the RCMP charged prominent Calgary anti-racism activist Taylor McNallie with assault with a weapon, an allegation she described as a "joke" and something she plans to fight in court.

The RCMP say their investigation into the Sept. 20 rally has concluded and it doesn't expect any further charges.
