Alberta biker gangs battle on Cranbrook Street North

The wild west of an outlaw motorcycle gang rivalry spilled over in Cranbrook Friday evening, resulting in five people hospitalized for stab wounds and Mounties escorting one of the gangs out of town.

On July 23 at approximately 7 p.m., Cranbrook RCMP was called to a local gas station on Cranbrook Street North for a report of multiple people fighting.

Front line officers flooded the area and were able to separate the two groups, determined to be rival outlaw motorcycle gangs from Alberta.

Shortly after, officers were called to East Kootenay Regional Hospital, where a total of five individuals attended with apparent stab wounds. The hospital was temporarily placed under lock down while injured parties were being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Officers stationed in the parking lot were able to prevent further violence between members of both gangs who had attended the hospital, but were refused entry.

All injured individuals were released after receiving treatment and one group was escorted out of town by the Cranbrook RCMP.

At this time, no arrests have been made and the investigation is being led by the Cranbrook RCMP General Investigation Section, with support from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia.

There is no indication that this incident is related to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict, said a BC RCMP Communication Services media release.

Police did not identify the gangs involved or provide details of where they are based.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or was able to capture the altercation on video is asked to contact the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471.
