EDMONTON – Edmonton police say they have charged a “prolific offender” in connection to an assault on a cleaner at an LRT station.

Shortly before noon on Tuesday, a man approached another man cleaning the MacEwan train station, produced a knife, and demanded the cleaner’s cell phone.

The 61-year-old victim tried to run but was caught and that’s when police say he was viciously attacked and left lying unconscious on the ground.

Investigators say the suspect fled and threatened another man outside of a downtown business near Churchill Square.

Terrence MacLean, 33, has been charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon, robbery, mischief, and failing to comply with probation.
