RCMP urge caution after woman attacked and robbed in central Alberta  RCMP in central Alberta are warning women to be on guard for their own safety after a young woman was kidnapped, robbed and sexually assaulted. Police say a 20-year-old woman was leaving her job shortly after midnight at a hotel on Red Deer's gasoline alley, when a man came to her driver's side door and brandished a knife. According to police, the man forced the young woman to get in the passenger seat and he drove to a bank where he took her to the ATM and forced her to withdraw money from her account.
