The RCMP have released a few more details regarding an assault that occurred last Saturday (Jan. 7). 

At about 8 a.m. that morning, police were called to the area of Highway 831 between Township Road 560 and Highway 29 just north of Lamont. 

Upon arriving they discovered a 46-year-old man on the road beside a vehicle. Emergency Services responded to the man and transported him to the hospital. 

Corporal Troy Savinkoff says the man was a resident of the Sherwood Park area and is in critical condition at the hospital. 

"This is a rather complex investigation," said Savinkoff. "RCMP have spoken to all parties and we are not looking for any suspects." 

Savinkoff added that no arrests have been made and that police cannot comment on the motivation for the assault at this time. 

RCMP did say that more details would be released once the investigation was completed.
