Grande Prairie RCMP have released a composite sketch of a man suspected of pointing a gun at a truck driver along Highway 40. Police say the incident happened on November 11th, two kilometres south of the Canfor Road around 10:11 a.m.
The semi truck was on a service road when a black pickup truck pulled in front of it and turned onto Big Mountain Road. As the semi pulled up to the intersection, the driver saw the pickup back up, and its driver get out of the vehicle.
It’s reported he then got what looked like a long barrel gun out of the back seat and pointed at at the semi driver. The truck was able to drive through the intersection and no shots were fired.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, 40 to 45 years old, 6’0″ and 210 to 220 pounds. He had ear length, dark curly hair and was wearing grey sweatpants, a camo jacket, and round or oval shooting glasses.
RCMP say they can’t confirm whether this incident is related to the cases of three trucks shot on Highway 40 in October. They ask anyone with information or who could identify the suspect in this case to contact the Grande Prairie detachment or Crime Stoppers.
