Charges Laid In Assault Of Lethbridge Regional Police Officer

 
 
Lethbridge:   A 31-year old Regional Police officer remains in stable condition in Calgary Foothills hospital with serious head injuries suffered in an assault early Wednesday morning.  Constable Norman Smith has a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, a broken nose and lacerations.

  Smith stopped two men walking down the road along South Parkside Drive at about two in the morning.  One man fled but returned while the officer was arresting and handcuffing the second suspect. The first suspect  began beating the officer. Both men then fled.   

  According to Inspector Colin Catonio, "Some residents in the area caught the tail-end of the incident and one was able to point out the direction in which one of the suspects went". Patrol officers apprehended one suspect while K-9 officer Ivo took down the other.

  The pair of suspects are both from Calgary and have been remanded in custody to appear in court on Friday, February 25th.  20-year old Raymond Joshua Asham is charged with aggravated assault of a peace officer and escaping lawful custody.  24-year old Aaron Head faces aggravated assault of a peace officer and accessory to escaping lawful custody.

  Constable Smith was initially taken to Regional Hospital but then transferred to Foothills. He has been with Regional Police since October of 2009 and before that he worked with Edmonton Police. He is married and the father of three young children.
