Strathmore RCMP were called to an attempted carjacking on Thursday evening.

Just after 5 p.m. police were called to the No Frills parking lot on Pine Road following reports of an attempted car theft.

"While suspects were in the vehicle attempting to steal it, reports indicate that there was another individual hanging out the side of the vehicle trying to stop them from stealing it," said Corporal Troy Savinkoff with the Alberta RCMP.

Strathmore RCMP speak with witnesses of the car theft.

The vehicle, a newer-model grey Chevrolet Silverado, ended up crashing into a nearby power pole, with the suspects exiting the vehicle and fleeing the scene.

The investigation is still ongoing, with police continuing to search for the suspects.
