A 32-year-old Eden Valley man may find himself out of work for an extended time after being charged in connection with the beating of his employer.
The accused went to his job at Eden Valley public works Tuesday morning only to be informed his services were no longer needed.
“He allegedly went to the person who was his boss and he jumped him,” said Turner Valley RCMP Cpl. Terry Hamelin. “There was another person in the building and he assaulted that person too.”
He is alleged to have assaulted a supervisor and another co-worker. The suspect fled the scene and was located later by police hiding in a treed area.
One of the victims, who may have been choked, was injured, treated at hospital and released.
Dusty Jonathan Lee Dixon of Eden Valley has been charged with choking to overcome resistance, forceful confinement, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, two counts of assault and three counts of breach of probation orders.
Dixon is scheduled to appear in Okotoks provincial court on Oct. 8 .
