Rayleen Annie Dixon, 29, and Kevin Terrance Black Rabbit, 33, have been charged by the Calgary Police Service for an alledged series of targeted attacks that took place at the Anderson LRT station in February and March.
Police said they responded to a male suspect pointing a shotgun at a pair of people at the station during the evening of February 3, 2023, before one was robbed. Police were unable to apprehend the suspect at the time.
Police were again called to the Andersen station on March 3, after a woman was assaulted by a female suspect using bear spray. Both suspects were alleged to have assaulted a man and a woman at the station later in the evening using bear spray and nun-chucks.
Investigators were able to identify Dixon and Black Rabbit using witness statements and CCTV video.
“A tremendous amount of hard work goes into ensuring the safety of all Calgarians, including working with Transit Peace Officers, to protect our public transportation system and its ridership,” said Staff Sergeant Mark Auger with the Calgary Police Service Investigations Unit.
“In all of these cases, quality CCTV footage and numerous witnesses provided key information for officers to advance this investigation and ultimately apprehend those responsible for these violent incidents.”
Dixon and Black Rabbit are facing a combined 40 charges, including chargers for assault with a weapon, using a dangerous weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, administering a noxious substance, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a licence, possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order, careless use of a prohibited weapon, possession of a firearm with serial number removed, wearing a disguise with intent, and failing to comply with conditions of a release order.
Black Rabbit is due in court on March 30, and Dixon on April 19.
Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or submit tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
