A first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday* in Edmonton for the man accused of trying to kill a woman with a crowbar during a suspected road rage incident last Tuesday.
The tips came flooding in to Edmonton police when a woman told investigators she was followed home and attacked by a driver she had honked at.
On a Go-Fund-Me Page, the woman’s sister writes that she faces a three-month recovery, and is unable to open her hands or perform simple tasks.
“No words describe the terror of getting a call saying that someone has broke your sister’s arms with a crowbar,” Belynda Schendzielorz wrote on the web page.
Schendzielorz said when she looked into her sister’s eyes she did not know how to answer her question: “Why would someone want to do this to me?”
Police made an arrest the next day.
Jared Matthew Eliasson, 28, is charged with aggravated assault, possession of a dangerous weapon, and attempt to commit murder. (ms, Global News)
