A man is wanted by Alberta RCMP on warrants after an officer was nearly hit by a vehicle when police recently visited a rural property.

Members of Airdrie RCMP’s crime reduction unit visited a property in Rocky View County on Thursday to arrest another man who was wanted on over 40 outstanding arrest warrants. When officers walked up to a house to knock on the door, police allege a man aggressively drove a vehicle directly at one of the officers. That officer jumped out of the way.

“The suspect then fled the area driving in a very dangerous manner,” the RCMP said in a news release.

Police allege a second man at the house got into a black Honda CRV and drove through the backyard and into neighbouring farmers’ fields, damaging fences.
