OMG! Our town is in shock & no one wants to go outside!!!

I guess they have someone in custody now and are only communicating through cell phones now so people can't listen in on the scanners. I hope this is the guy though, or we still aren't going to feel very safe here.

Ok, so as of this morning, there has been no one arrested for these attacks. The attack yesterday was not in the Tim Horton's parking lot, but in the walking trails a block from there. The girl got away and made it to the Tim Horton's parking lot to get help. Physically she is alright that goodness.

 

The second attack occurred in the same walking path as the first one, except it was at the other end of town. The first attack occurred about a block from my cousins, and the second attack happened a block from my parents. I used to walk through the path there all the time when I lived at home, as it was the quickest route to go somewhere in town. Growing up, the only times that I avoided the raven was when there was warnings out that a bear was in the area since there has been 4 or 5 occassions when a bear has made its way into the paths in town.

 

The schools still remain on lock down and the kids have to stay inside during breaks and can only leave on the bus or when a parent picks them up.

EricaG,

 

I have been to Edson a few times for work and I wish that for you and your community they catch this guy FAST! No one should have to live in that much fear!

Today they were letting the kids play outside, but they were under very close watch by staff members. When I took my daughter to playschool, they have the doors locked so you have to wait for someone to let you in. Normally you only have to sign your child in and then go into the room to pick them up, but while this is still all happening, we have to sign them out as well. On my way over to my Mom's today, I have to drive through the raven which the path goes through. There are 2 news vans there with their satillite dishes up, and the path has been closed and taped off with police tape. Everyone is just wanting this guy to be caught and the nigthmare over!

 

As we get more updates, I will post them here.

Are those two events related? I imagine in a small town they are.

 

SOOO scary. I don't blame you for being terrified. I hope they catch this asshole quick and make it very painful for him.

They haven't confirmed that the 2 attacks are related, but that is what everyone is thnking. Things like this don't usually happen here, and then in 4 days there are 2 attacks on females in the town path through the trees. We have never had problems in the trees along the path before. Actually, it wasn't long ago when my little sister used to go party along the path. Thank goodness the kids were never attacked.
